Indiana Pacers power forward David West knows there will be a flashback as soon as he steps onto the court Saturday at Energy Solutions Arena for the team's morning shootaround.
West will look down toward the basket near the Utah Jazz bench and think back to almost two years ago when he slipped a pick-and-roll, took the pass and went in for a dunk with 22.5 seconds left in the game
Then it happened.
Utah forward Paul Milsap fouled West, who was with the New Orleans Hornets at the time, on the play. Instead of falling on his hands to brace his fall, the Pacers forward thought he could avoid injury so he attempted to land on his feet.
