Sergio, from the hospital: "Rudy got scared because he couldn't breathe well, but he's fine"

 

"I was shocked, you don't know how to react" - Rudy is asleep and he hurts on his side and neck - He's expected to be out tomorrow

 

"It was a weird moment. It was a blowout, we were all playing well... In some way you could imagine that Ariza was going to hit him because they had turned it over a few times in a row... He tried to hit him, but not to hurt him. I even think that Ariza reacts violently after that because he's scared about what he's done". A few meters away from Rose Garden, from the hospital, Sergio Rodriguez answers Marca.com- Rudy Fernández is already sleeping and Sergio, with some of Rudy's friend are still there.

 

 

"I was shocked. You just don't know how to react", says Sergio, whose first instinct was to get on the court, but was stopped by Monty Williams, he stops him and he has to stay on the bench. "I don't know what I would've done if they let me go", he confesses, and the fact is that in that moment there were two focuses: Rudy on the floor and the skirmish that was going on.

"There's a big show until he's taken out, he's on the floor, you can't get close... That makes it look worse than it is".


Teammates prayers
In that chaos, Sergio and Rudy's teammates started praying. In that moment you could see Sergio was visibly affected, looking where his friend was. "It's been strange. Everybody was praying and I was looking the other way". (Note: People in Spain aren't so religious and no one prays in public)


Just a scary moment
Luckily, the hospital is really close to the Rose Garden and Rudy could stay calm. "He was scared because he couldn't breathe well, but it's nothing. He hurts on his side and neck. He'll spend tonight in the hospital, but he's expected to leave tomorrow", he calms the fans, the same way he's done all night with Rudy's family.
