One more day of NBA playoffs and one new chaotic situation caused by a fanatic. It happened in game 4 of the series between the Washington Wizards and the Philadelphia Sixers. A fan entered the court in the middle of the game and had enough time to jump and touch the board of one of the hoops before being tackled by a member of compound security.
It all happened in eight seconds: the fan burst running from the stands and entered the middle of the court, heading towards the side of the court that was unoccupied. He jumped to touch the board and was then neutralized.
