Anthony Davis took a terrifying tumble into the stands during Team USA’s exhibition victory Saturday night over Brazil.

It was doubly frightening after Paul George’s compound fracture, but thankfully Davis climbed out of the crowd and headed back to the court.

Davis was none the worse for the encounter. He finished with 20 points.
