The kick to Crowder’s groin looked bad, but Davis says his actions were unintentional.
Anthony Davis says "it wasn't intentional" when he kicked Jae Crowder. He's not that type of player and says Crowder knows it wasn't intentional.

Some may wonder if something more is going on. Last year in the NBA Finals, Davis caught Crowder in the face with an elbow. This one did not look intentional though.
The Lakers won the game 109-102 to even the series at one.
