Cleveland Cavaliers forward Antawn Jamison bumped knees with Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson, and it caused him to writhe in pain. Posted by Ben Golliver Scary scene in Cleveland on Tuesday night, and for once it didn't involve Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert over-using Comic Sans. During the first quarter of Tuesday night's game between the Cavaliers and the Orlando Magic, Cleveland forward Antawn Jamison showed on a high screen and roll against Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson. Nelson drove through Jamison's body, and the two players bumped their respective right knees pretty hard.  While Nelson hopped right up, Jamison's reaction was horrific, as he appeared to be auditioning for membership in the Vince Carter / Tracy McGrady family tree, writhing around in pain for nearly a minute before Cavaliers trainers were able to attend to him.  We can joke about this incident because the Cavaliers said shortly after the incident that Jamison simply suffered a "knee contusion" and he returned to the game later in the first quarter.
