Video: Dwight Howard D-Bo style KO of Big Baby...

The Eastern Conference finals turned scary late in the third quarter of Game 5 between the Boston Celtics and the Orlando Magic, when Celtics forward Glen Davis caught a nasty errant elbow from Dwight Howard after the Orlando center's layup attempt was blocked by C's guard Nate Robinson. From the Associated Press:

Davis was struck in the face by [Howard's] elbow, tumbling to the court as play went the other way. Davis tried to get up, only to fall again, and then was clearly dazed when he got to his feet.
He took a few more steps, then staggered toward [referee Joey] Crawford, who wrapped his arms around Davis to keep him upright as play stopped with 9.7 seconds left in the period. Davis was tended to on the court for a few minutes, then walked to the Celtics' bench and eventually toward the locker room for evaluation.

Celtics team physician Dr. Brian McKeon diagnosed Davis with a concussion, according to's Chris Forsberg, and the third-year player out of LSU did not return to the game. ('s Paul Flannery wrote that he also thought he saw Davis lose at least one tooth, which was later confirmed by ESPN's Rachel Nichols.) Via Ball Don't Lie
