Watch: Lance Stevenson injured after crazy-dangerous layup shot

Published Add your comment

Lance Stevenson is having an incredible season for the Indiana Pacers.

He leads the league in triple-doubles and, last night against the Atlanta Hawks, showed just how much he wants to score points.

As he made his way to the hoop Stephenson lined up for a dunk - taking to the air to evade the challenges of Hawks' pair Paul Millsap and Kyle Korver.

Unfortunately for the Pacers' man Millsap moved to block him, clipping Stevenson on his way to the basket.

Millsap's foul brought to an end the chances of a crowd-pleasing dunk and left the shooting guard on his backside after a perfectly executed - but completely unintentional - forward role.

But Stevenson is not an All-Star wannabe for nothing.

Despite being at a near horizontal angle, as he headed for the floor Stevenson managed to release the ball and watch as it looped up into the basket for one of this seasons most unconventional layups.

Short term gains but long term issues for the Indiana Pacers with Stevenson having to leave the game and now listed as day-to-day by the franchise.
