Chris Paul appears to hit Kevin Durant in the, um, family jewels

Chris Paul, Kyle Singler

Was this intentional?

Chris Paul has Kevin Durant guarding him, throws a pass to DeAndre Jordan in the midpost, then makes a cut into space — as he does his arm swings and appears to catch Kevin Durant right in the, er, place guys least like to be hit.

Durant’s reaction says CP3 made contact. Intentional or not. Although if I had to guess based on Chris Paul’s history, I’d say it was no accident. This has happened before.

Durant had the last laugh, scoring 30 to lead the Thunder to a 120-108 win, avenging their blown-lead loss from the previous week.
