Serge Ibaka hits Blake Griffin in the nuts (GIF)
It took Blake Griffin less than a minute to get nailed where the sun don’t shine in Game 4 against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday. Griffin made a move to the basket against Serge Ibaka and couldn’t finish, but it wasn’t the missed layup he was left thinking about.
Ibaka fell into teammate Kendrick Perkins and Perkins shoved off of him to try to get position. Ibaka lost his balance and ended up punching Griffin directly in the nuts. Griffin stayed down for a few seconds but was able to shake it off.
We’ve (unfortunately) seen plenty of nut shots over the years, and that was one of the worst. Ibaka didn’t do it on purpose, but it looked very painful. Somebody get the Griff man an ice pack.
