An NBA sideline reporter found out the hard way that a wet hardwood floor and high heels don't mix during Monday's basketball action.

Fans on Twitter were left alarmed after footage of Los Angeles Clippers sideline reporter Kristina Pink falling hard to the floor after slipping following an on-court interview went viral.

Pink had just concluded a brief chat with Clippers guard Amir Coffey, who had just posted a career-high 21-points in a 106-93 win over Atlanta.

Coffey's career night prompted his Clippers teammates to shower him with water on the court after the victory.

Unfortunately for Pink, this left a surface that might as well have been ice.

Taking the hard fall in good stride, Pink tweeted a message to fans a short time later to let them know she was OK.

“For everyone asking, I’m ok,” she wrote “There was water on the court... Appreciate all the messages.”

Coffey lead the Clippers in scoring as the team continues its season without injured All-Stars Paul George and Kawhi Leonard.

Leonard, who suffered a partial ACL team during last year's playoffs, has been rumoured to make a return late this season.

There is not yet a firm timeline on George's return either, with the 31-year-old to be re-evaluated by team doctors soon after surgery on a torn ligament in his elbow.

Trae Young and Bogdan Bogdanovic each topped the scoring for Atlanta with 19.

Nets end NBA home skid with overtime win

The Brooklyn Nets just needed any home win, so they weren't about to complain when one that appeared to be coming easily almost didn't come at all.

A blown 10-point lead late in regulation resulted in five more minutes, but it finally ended with their first win at Barclays Center since December 16 — as Patty Mills returned to form against his former team after his recent shooting struggles.

"Different challenges each game, so we figure out what they are, fight through them and do better," Kevin Durant said.

Rookie Cam Thomas made a runner in the lane with 1.4 seconds left in overtime and the Nets beat the San Antonio Spurs 121-119 on Sunday to snap a five-game home losing streak.

Durant had 28 points for the Nets, James Harden had 26 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds while Australian guard Mills added 13 points to score in double figures for the first time in four games.

The Spurs made Durant give up the ball on the Nets' final possession and he got it to Thomas, who made no mistake.

"If you wish and could make your wish come true, you don't want him (Durant) shooting the last shot, that's for sure," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.

"But we let the young man go middle. A tough closeout. We needed to send him the opposite direction, so he made a tough shot."

Lonnie Walker scored 25 for the Spurs, while Dejounte Murray finished with 19 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds.

But the Spurs couldn't get up a good shot on the last possession of regulation or overtime in their sixth loss in seven games.

The win helped the Nets consolidate second place in the eastern conference.
