NBA star Paul George suffers horrible broken leg during scrimmage

Indiana Pacers star Paul George suffered a grisly broken leg Friday night during the USA Basketball Showcase scrimmage.

George came down hard while trying to contest a basket, and when he landed, his right leg clearly broke below the knee.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski announced the rest of the Team USA scrimmage was canceled due to the incident.

George averaged a team-best 21.7 points per game this past season for the Pacers along with 6.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game.
