The Warriors-Spurs series has certainly seen its share of borderline dirty plays. It all started in Game 1 when Zaza Pachulia closed out a little too zealously on a Kawhi Leondard three-point attempt, causing the latter to injure his ankle and miss the next two games – not to mention altering the entire trajectory of the series.
In the following game, LaMarcus Aldridge appeared to do the same thing to Kevin Durant. Fortunately, KD managed to avoid harm and so the story died out quickly, but it certainly could be construed as an attempt at payback. Now, the Spurs are responsible for yet another questionable play.
