    Zaza has injured the two best SF in the league in one season.

    Leonard had already rolled that ankle once. Get outta here with dirty play.

    Not exactly sure what was dirty about that. If Leonard didn't have an injured ankle before it, I don't think anyone says anything about it because what he did is what every defender does. Just a very unfortunate thing that happens in basketball.

    The NBA has made a point to eliminate that play from the game. Now I don't think he went in there with the intent to injure him, but he knew exactly what he was doing. There is a reason Van Gundy was saying it should be a flagarant foul.

    Did they call a foul on that play?

    Flagrant is a reach.

    Yes, as they should have. I'm not sure anything more than a foul is necessary in that situation.

    Mostly, I agree. It is similar to a defenseless receiver in the NFL.

    I think Zaza's momentum took him further under Kawhi than normal. I think the rule's intent is to keep a straight up defender from standing under a shooter.
