Oklahoma City Thunder big man Serge Ibaka was in the right place at the right time for an employee at Penn Square Mall.

Grant works at the mall and was biking home when he lost control. He flipped his bike and hit the pavement face first, chipping his tooth and cutting his chin in the process.

He told TMZ as soon as he went down, someone ran over to help: it was none other than Serge Ibaka.

He said he asked if he was okay and helped him up. He then took him inside the mall, got him some water, and help to clean his wounds.

"He was so nice, really nice," Grant told TMZ "He really didn't need to take time to do that, but it's awesome that he did."

Grant also called Ibaka his 'big black angel'.
