Celtics forward Mickael Pietrus fell awkwardly on his back and was taken off on a stretcher.

In a scary moment during the second quarter of the Sixers-Celtics game on Friday night in Philadelphia, Boston forward Mickael Pietrus was driving through the lane when he was fouled in the air by Lou Williams. He fell awkwardly on his back and hit the hardwood with a jarring thud. Pietrus immediately clutched the back of his head, which was a bit odd considering it never touched the ground. He lay motionless and was taken off the floor on a stretcher and presumably to a local hospital. No word on the exact injury just yet…
