Metta World Peace indicated his plans to avoid making peace with James Harden prior to the playoff series between the Thunder and Lakers, and it looks like Harden got at least some revenge during Game 2 on Wednesday. Early in the game, Harden was being guarded by Metta and went behind his back with a dribble. His left arm went flailing and his elbow caught World Peace in the face. If you watch it in slow motion, it looks like Harden may have intentionally nailed Metta with a sly elbow, but if you watch it at full speed, it looks much more innocent.
Either way, we do know based on this image that Harden popped World Peace squarely in the nose:
So what do you think, was it revenge or just an accident? I lean more to the latter.
