Steven Adams kicked in groin by Draymond Green (Video)
Steven Adams has taken a beating during this year’s playoffs and it continued on Sunday during Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.
Adams injured his thumb during the series with the Spurs. Then, in Game 1 against the Warriors, he had a bloody nose and played with a a piece of gauze hanging out of his nostril. During Game 2, Adams briefly went back to the locker room with a sore back after Festus Ezeli came down on it. During the same game, Adams took a shot to the groin from Draymond Green’s leg.
On Sunday, Adams was hit in the same area again. Like in the previous game, it was Green’s leg that did the damage.

Officials reviewed the play and Green was assessed a Flagrant 1 foul. That wasn’t enough for Thunder fans, who began chanting “Kick him out!” as officials reviewed the play.
They are chanting "Kick him out! Kick him out!"

Last week, Steven Adams said Draymond Green has reached “peak annoyingness” with the way he plays the game. Green may have just surpassed that level, if that’s possible.
