Los Angeles Clippers guard Bones Hyland reacted honestly to a terrifying incident while the team was airborne traveling to Colorado for a game against the Denver Nuggets late last month.
The team was in a delta airlines chartered flight when staff saw lightning strike the right side of the aircraft, according to an ESPN report Wednesday. The engine reportedly fell silent before coming back to life, striking fear into the hearts and minds of all on board.

The incident reportedly occurred on February 25, just one day before the team lost in overtime to the Nuggets. It was their second straight loss and their second straight overtime loss after falling to the Sacramento Kings in double overtime the night before. The two losses were part of a five game losing streak, which did not end until March 5.
«Our luck was so bad that we even got struck by lightning,» Clippers coach Ty Lue added.
However, it’s been almost two weeks since their last loss and they are currently riding a four-fight win streak. Los Angeles defeated the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, 134-126. Kawhi Leonard scored 30 points in the win. Ivica Zubac had 19 points and 16 rebounds.
