Last night, the Pacers defeated the Atlanta Hawks, narrowly escaping an embarrassing, early exit at the hands of the 8 seed. That win might’ve come at a cost.

While the Pacers head home to play a crucial game 7, and possibly live to play another series, they might have to do it without their star player. During a scuffle that broke out on the court between Atlanta Hawk player Mike Scott and Pacers guard George Hill, George might’ve put his season in jeopardy. It appears that George might’ve stepped on the court during the brawl. That’s a huge no-no in the NBA. Anybody sitting on the bench that even steps foot on the court when a fight breaks out, will face an immediate one game suspension.

In the video, it appears that George stepped both feet on the floor. A descion hasn’t been made as of yet, but officials are checking the video to decide what to do.

Watch the footage below and judge for yourself. Did Paul George step on the court?
