Pacers guard Victor Oladipo took out a referee with a pass after mistaking him for a teammate. The result of the play was a referee down and a turnover.
Giving the Knicks an extra possession didn’t have much affect on the outcome of the game. The Pacers took care of the Knicks easily 121-106.

It’s always entertaining when an official goes down in any sport. Especially if a ball flying in their direction is the reason they hit the deck.
The referee popped right back up and appeared to be just fine as play continued.
