Fans who were sitting courtside during the Dallas Mavericks-Los Angeles Clippers game on Tuesday night were excited and lucky to get so close to the action.
A few fans got much closer than others.
The game was full of some wonderful moments and amazing performances, including one from Luka Doncic, who scored 43 points, 11 rebounds, and 7 assists.
One moment that certainly had an impact on fans was one that didn’t really happen on the court.
Luka Doncic went flying over the courtside row

While trying to get hold of the ball that was headed out of bounds, Doncic came crashing into some courtside seats.
He was moving at some high speed, leading to him literally flipping over the seats and the viewers sitting in them.
Luckily, Doncic and the fans were safe and no one was injured
But for a brief moment, it looked like the Slovenian All-Star might have hurt himself.
At 6-foot-7 and 230 pounds, Doncic is not a little guy and a fall like that could have been really bad.
The last thing the Mavericks need right now is for them to lose Doncic again: The team has not won a single game without him, showing just how important he is for his squad.
Tuesday night was another example of that but even with Doncic’s powerhouse performance the Mavericks still couldn’t overcome the Clippers.
Doncic tried his hardest but it just wasn’t good enough.
People pay top dollar to sit so close to the court because they want to be close enough to touch the players.
But they usually don’t expect any physical contact like this.
