After scoring 26 points in the first quarter against his former Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson saw a fair amount of double-teams in the third quarter. He passed quickly out of most, but not every pass hit its intended target… or body part.
Johnson whizzed a cross-court pass intended for Alan Anderson well over his head, smacking an unsuspecting fan who was walking in the aisle right in the noggin. The fan did not hit the ground and appeared to be okay, but the head-ringing gave him quite a shock.
Once they were sure the fan was okay, the hit sent Eagle and Spanarkel into a giggling frenzy, and they poured on the jokes and laughs.
