Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome broken leg just minutes into his first game with the Boston Celtics.
The injury could be heard over the television broadcast and once everybody in the arena realised what happened, a hush came over the crowd, followed the faint sounds of people whispering in shock.
Even without seeing the injury, the severity of the moment could be detected by seeing the reaction of players sitting near Hayward on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ bench. They didn’t see the injury immediately, but when they did, they all either turned their heads or covered their face in horror.
