OKLAHOMA CITY – Besides the Oklahoma City Thunder’s epic 133-105 victory over the Golden State Warriors, everyone is talking about the below the belt kick that left Steven Adams doubled over.
During the second quarter of Game 3, Warriors forward Draymond Green kicked Steven Adams directly in the groin, receiving a flagrant-one foul.
Although Green says the kick was an accident, others believe it was intentional and he should have been ejected from the game.
“I followed through on a shot,” Green said after the game. “I’m not trying to kick somebody in the men’s section. I’m sure he wants to have kids one day, I’m not trying to end that on a basketball court.”
“I don’t think I’ll be suspended,” Green added. “I don’t know how anyone could possibly say that I did that on purpose, regardless of the way it may look.”
It wasn’t the first time Green has kicked Adams in the groin.
The same thing happened in Game 2.
