Dirty play by Zaza on Kawhi. If you take away the shooter's ability to land safely you should get ejected.
Dirty or not, it happens all the time in the playoffs. Specially in the paint when grabbing rebounds. Players would be ejected every game.

Zaza is not even known to be dirty and he has been in the league for a long time. The guy is scrappy. Shoot, he was the one who injured KD.

Its unfortunate and GS took advantage of it. Spurs still blew out a huge lead. No excuse.

Zaza contested the shot, and after the ball was released took another step forward to get under. It can go either way, but without Kawhi SAS is toast.

When did you start watching the NBA?. Zaza is known to be a scrappy player not a dirty one. The guy has been in the league since early 2000. Dirty has never been associated with him.

Even Kawhi doesnt think its dirty.

pop thinks otherwise http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/1938 ... erous-play
Well he is the coach. He lost his best player and blew out a goddamn 25 point lead. Its natural for him to be mad and step up for his guys. He will be biased. I love pop and the spurs but what about bruce bowen?. The guy is probably one of the dirtiest player of ALL TIME.

Its one of those things where its terrible when it happens to your guys and its great if you are doing it to the other team.

Either the league cracks down on it or they dont. Targeting Zaza because he did something teams have done for DECADES in the playoffs is ridiculous. Aldridge and Gasol does it too. I saw them do it on harden.

Saw this on reddit.
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich criticized the NBA on Friday for warning Bruce Bowen about his defensive "tactics" and complained league officials are "trying to change the way my best defender plays."

Video of Bowen injuring Ray Allen, Steve Nash, Iverson, and others.



Bruce Bowen forced Vince Carter out of action and Carter had to get surgery later on, which probably in some way contributed to the
shortened span of his prime.



Carter once dunked on Tim Duncan and a few plays later Bowen injured Carter and he was out for a couple of weeks after that incident.

a decade ago the rules were different.

you guys are using Bowen like it's OK for anyone to put their legs in against SAS.
that's like saying it's OK to head shot pens player for what cooks did

just like the video you posted, there's also one for Pachulia

We are not talking about the rules a decade ago. We are talking about dirty plays. Bowen was a dirty player and Pop used him as his goon. Everyone who watches the NBA knows about Bruce Bowen.

Just like pop is critisizing zaza, bowen was being criticized back then. Pop stood up for him and said he was playing "defensively" and called out the NBA.

Here is the article again.

Gasol doing the same thing on Curry.

This is normal in the playoffs, you guys just dont pay attention to it. There is a reason Pop won multiple championship. Its not because he is stupid. Its because he is GOAT.

Watching this Washington vs Boston game 7....

I guess that's how it feels like when stars go out and perform. So used to seeing ours shrink in the spotlight while role players shine
