Good news, folks. Despite what looked like Irving breaking Teague's ankles, the Atlanta guard is fine. He even has a sense of humor about hitting the floor:

It was a bad moment for Teague, but he got his revenge on Irving and the Cavaliers a few minutes later. Teague hit the game-winning shot as time expired in double overtime to give the Hawks a thrilling 127-125 victory.
