Down one and bringing the ball up the court against the Trail Blazers with 30 seconds left, Jazz point guard Trey Burke ... had a neck spasm? Pinched nerve? Got shot by a sniper? Was stung by a bee? Punched by an invisible leprechaun? Whatever happened, it sent Burke down to his knees in an incredible amount of pain.

After a full timeout, though, Burke stayed in the game, and even missed a jumper with 15 seconds left. The Trail Blazers won 92-89.
