Paul George says he 'blacked out' after this collision with Dwyane Wade's knee

Published Add your comment

The Miami Heat overcome the Indiana Pacers in a sloppy game two of the Eastern Conference Finals by a scoreline 87-83 but if you ask Paul George about the final few minutes of the game, he may have a tough time recalling after taking a knee to the head from Dwyane Wade.

George spoke to the media after a disappointing home loss for the Pacers and discussed the injury he had sustained in the 4th quarter of the contest.

Playing close defence on Miami's Wade, George managed to strip the shooting guard but the ball bobbled around loose as both players attempted to gain control of it.

As George sprawled to the hardwood, Wade clumsily barrelled over the Pacers' small forward and kneed him in the back of the head.

George was apparently very woozy as he left the court and told the gathered media afterwards that he blacked out for a second and the last five minutes of the game he was still feeling the effects of the knock he had taken.

Wade also slightly injured himself at the time as he was seen clutching his knee after the incident, both players will be thoroughly assessed by medical staff before a huge game three of the series, as both teams head to Miami with it all locked up at 1-1.
