Cavs Reporter Allie Clifton Hit In Head With Basketball, Doesn't Even Flinch


Allie Clifton covers Cavaliers’ games for Fox Sports Ohio. During warm-ups before Wednesday’s Cavs – Timberwolves game, an errant basketball bounced off Clifton’s head while she was talking about Nikola Pekovic. Clifton, who played college basketball at Toledo, barely flinched when the ball hit her. With Anthony Bennett practicing free throws behind her, she probably knew she was in imminent danger. If only Pam Oliver had been so lucky. [via Sports Crackle Pop]
