Kevin Love gets hit in head with a ball before the Celtics game, J.R. to the rescue

Kevin Love was minding his own business Wednesday night before the game against the Celtics, working on his 3-point stroke in preparation for the much-anticipated matchup.

During the pregame warmups a scene drew a lot of attention on social media – both for the embarrassing nature of the event and the immediate reaction from J.R. Smith.

While shooting a jumper before the game, Cleveland forward Kevin Love took a basketball straight to the face, caught him off guard and falls to the floor as JR rushes into action attempting to revive Kevin Love with CPR, fortunately, he survived that horrible accident and Love was still able to play on the game afterwards.

Love’s face was clearly OK, and Smith’s reaction was perfect, so it naturally drew a big response on Twitter, as fans commented on the bromance between Love and Smith. Love’s reaction to the moment is priceless, and J.R. Smith coming to his rescue, performing CPR, completes the moment.

Some of the best tweets about Love’s embarrassing pregame moment can be seen below, complete with a side-by-side comparison to the time LeBron James was hit in the face with a basketball earlier this season:

Nothing like a little messing around before a big game. Even fans had some fun with the sequence.
