Kawhi Leonard was knocked out of Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals in the third quarter after turning his ankle for a second time, and a close review of the play led to a debate over the cleanliness of the play which injured the Spurs forward.

A replay showed Warriors center Zaza Pachulia sliding his feet underneath Leonard—who had turned his left ankle minutes prior—just before he landed on a jumpshot. Many raced to their keyboards to call the play dirty, claiming Pachulia moved his feet in order to re-aggrevate Leonard’s ankle.

Was it dirty? You be the judge.

The Spurs diagnosed Leonard with an ankle sprain.
