While defending Courtney Lee at the end of the first half of Golden State's playoff game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, Warriors forward Harrison Barnes got tripped up by Lee’s crossover and unintentionally collapsed into a split.
A Vine of Barnes’ unplanned acrobatic move entitled “Is Harrison Barnes dead?” quickly went viral:
Social media was abuzz with similar questions and comments about Barnes’ well-being.
Incredibly, Barnes seemed alright after his split, playing as usual when the second half began -- a feat that impressed many a netizen.
The Warriors bested the Grizzlies, 98-78. Golden State now leads the second-round playoff series 3-2.
