Klay Thompson accidentally runs over referee vs. Grizzlies

Golden State Warriors superstar Klay Thompson took a tumble after accidentally running over a referee during Tuesday night's NBA game in Memphis. 

It happened early in the third quarter with the Grizzlies holding a 59-56 lead.  Steph Curry grabbed a defensive rebound and was leading a Warriors fast break down the court.  Thompson ran parallel to Curry towards the sideline and was waiting for the dish from Curry.  Unfortuantely, he didn't see referee Natalie Sago, who was also running along the sideline.  She tried to get out of Thompson's way at the last moment, but was unable to.  Thompson bumped into her and they both tumbled to the floor.

Thompson had just returned to the court on Sunday after recovering from injuries over the last two and a half years, so the last thing any basketball fan wants to see is for Thompson to go down again.  Fortunately, both Thompson and Sago were OK.  They checked on each other and had a good laugh about it, with Thompson smiling and giving Sago the thumbs-up.

As for the game, Thompson scored 14 points in 20 minutes, but the Warriors lost to the Grizzlies 116-108
