Driving down the lane, Brown went up for a dunk, and his momentum caused his legs to swing up toward the rim.

Jaylen Brown suffered a horrific fall during the Celtics' win over the Timberwolves on Thursday. When Brown's hands slipped off the rim, he twisted and landed on his upper back near his neck as medical staff from both teams raced over to check on him under the basket. Brown stayed down and was still for several minutes, and a stretcher was rushed out.

For now, though, we can at least thank heaven for the small mercy of knowing the one he didn't, by virtue of Brown getting back to his feet and walking off the floor. And then for him to get up, that's a strong kid, it took everything he had. "Took everything he had". Us playing is just a little part of us.
