Well... this is certainly a plot twist.
Shyamalan, a diehard Sixers fan, took to Twitter to show his eye off.
It seems a little hard to tell whether or not he actually has a black eye, so we'll just take the director's word for it.
It looks like Shyamalan might be a good luck charm for the 76ers, as Philadelphia upset the Western Conference leaders without their superstar center Joel Embiid.
So the black eye seems to be worth it for getting the win.
While LeBron James and Anthony Davis combined for a solid 60 points, the other eight Lakers to step on the court combined for a weak 31 points and Los Angeles lost because of it.
Fantastic performances from Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris pushed the Sixers over the top, and the win puts them just a half-game behind the Indiana Pacers for fifth place in the East.
