Here's why you should get off your phone when watching live sport

Unless you’re reading The42 of course.

KEEP ONE EYE on the court.

That’s the lesson one woman seated behind the Charlotte Hornets’ bench learned last night after suffering a bloody nose when a tipped pass hit her square in the face during their loss to the Sacramento Kings.

The woman clearly wasn’t paying attention, instead looking down at the phone of the person sitting next to her when the ball caught her cleanly.

Luckily, she appeared to be okay and stayed until the end of the game.

Some big dunks and a headband-less LeBron graced the NBA last night
