No man likes to be hit down south, but Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams has been clocked there twice in his side’s Eastern Conference Finals series against the Golden State Warriors.
Warriors forward Draymond Green was the culprit on both occasions as he kneed Adams in the groin in Game 2 on Wednesday and kicked him in the same region during Game 3 on Sunday.
The incident occurred when while Adams was defending Green midway through the second quarter. Green jumped up and flailed his arms as a shooting foul was called against Adams, but as Green was coming down, he kicked his leg out and caught Adams in the groin.

While it is hard to say whether the move was intentional, Green was hit with a flagrant 1 foul even though Thunder fans were chanting “kick him out”.
The Thunder had the last laugh in the end though as they crushed the reigning NBA champions 133-105 to take a 2-1 lead in the series.
