There aren't a huge number of occupational hazards in the job of an NBA sideline reporter, but Cleveland Cavaliers and Fox Sports Ohio reporter Allie Clifton suffered likely the worst kind—a basketball to the head. 

Clifton takes a ball directly to the head and doesn't miss a beat, like a true professional. 

She later tweeted about the incident.

@JevonFrazier The game is in my blood - nothing gets me rattled. ;)
