The San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors both took a 24-second violation at the start of their NBA match on Sunday to honour basketball legend Kobe Bryant.
Bryant's death in a helicopter crash in Calabasas near Los Angeles, California was sadly confirmed shortly before the game started in San Antonio, Texas.
Both teams held the ball for 24 seconds, which is a violation in the NBA. The Raptors did it first and the Spurs followed.
Kobe wore the #24 jersey for the Los Angeles Lakers, the franchise he spent his entire 20-year career playing for.
It was a touching scene inside the AT&T Center, where the crowd rose to their feet and chanted "Kobe!".
