Many are wondering just that after LaMarcus Aldridge appeared to try to injure Kevin Durant on Tuesday during Game 2 of the Western Conference finals series between the Spurs and Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors now lead the Spurs 2-0 heading back to San Antonio. "I don't think as a group they really did, which means probably a little bit feeling sorry for themselves".

"I think bigs just try to contest shots and sometimes that stuff may happen but it's not on goal at all", Durant told reporters after the game.

That honor would probably go to the largest crocodiles that ever existed, extinct beasts that were 35 or 40 feet long, he says. That's thanks to the right combination of biting power plus blunt teeth that were serrated like steak knives, says Erickson.

The showing was even more concerning since the team's primary star, Kawhi Leonard, left Game 1 with an ankle injury and didn't play Game 2. Perhaps more importantly, they held San Antonio to a 16-point first quarter. "You can't do it", Popovich said. "Whether it's for himself or teammates". Now people are debating whether the Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge tried to take an eye for an eye. "I watched the end of last game and I saw how they were doubling and they were trying to crowd me, so I thought I would come out and try to move the ball, but I ended up taking myself out of rhythm and out of the flow of the game", Aldridge said. The Warriors clamped down on Aldridge in Game 2, and without any kind of dynamism on the wing or added ball handling with Leonard gone, it's easy for one of the best defensive teams in the National Basketball Association in Golden State to gameplan for their opponent.

A big point of discussion on social media is whether Pachulia meant to take out Leonard or not.

Game 3 tips off from the AT&T Center at 8 p.m.
