Austin Rivers saw his life flash before his eyes during Saturday night’s game 5 between the Lakers and the Rockets.

Late in the fourth quarter Rivers accidentally threw the ball at LeBron’s head after a foul call and LeBron looked like he was ready to fight Rivers for a brief moment before cooling off.

LeBron James was about to end Austin Rivers. This game is pure comedy
