Russell Westbrook on Green’s kick: ‘It looked intentional to me’
“I think it’s intentional,” Westbrook said. “That’s two times in the last two games. You can’t keep kicking someone in their private areas”
Green was assessed a Flagrant 1 foul in the second quarter of the game for kicking Thunder forward Steven Adams in the groin, which he and coach Steve Kerr claimed was inadvertent.
As Green went up for a shot and became tangled up with Adams, he kicked him right between the legs. Adams went down to the ground in pain, and had to be lifted from the game momentarily.
Fans in Oklahoma City began to chant “kick him out!” as Green’s foul was reviewed by officials.
Oklahoma City leads the series 2–1.
