Did LaMarcus Aldridge get away with groin punch on Gary Harris?
Did LaMarcus Aldridge get away with a groin punch on Gary Harris in Game 2 of the San Antonio Spurs-Denver Nuggets first round playoff series?
Video has been circulating around the net that shows Harris going down around the free throw line while trying to set a screen in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s game. Aldridge appears to wind up with his right arm, while his left also appears to make contact with Harris.
After seeing this replay I wouldn’t be surprised if Aldridge got suspended for a game. This looks almost unquestionably intentional. pic.twitter.com/ibi9gaklr7

Here’s another angle:
Saw a video of Aldridge allegedly hitting someone in the nuts. Thought this vid of an alternate angle should be seen pic.twitter.com/Kqc4HXSYRj

Aldridge was not called for any fouls in the sequence.
Do you think he got away with something? Even if the contact was accidental, Harris did not seem to be flopping.
