Referee Scott Foster left bloody after collision with LeBron James
NBA official Scott Foster was bloodied after being involved in a collision with LeBron James during Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets on Saturday night.
James was running down the court after Dennis Schroder made a free throw with 1:16 left in the second quarter. He inadvertently bumped into Foster, who had his whistle in his mouth.
Though Foster tried to get out of the way, the contact was enough to give Foster a cut above his lip and leave him bleeding.

Foster wasn’t about to let a little bit of blood keep him out.
