Vince Carter’s post-game reaction to Patrick McCaw’s scary in-air collision
With 41.8 seconds left in the 3rd quarter, there was an unfortunate sight at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento as Vince Carter unintentionally bumped into Patrick McCaw, who was cutting to the hoop for a layup from Jordan Bell.
This bump caused McCaw to lose balance and he had a horrific encounter with the floor. Vince Carter was thoroughly distraught by the incident, which was apparent at many times during the game including taking part in a prayer with the Warriors, an in-game hug with Kevin Durant, and ultimately his post-game comments to the media after the game:
Vince Carter is in literal tears here after he accidentally undercut Patrick McCaw and it led to that hard fall. Anyone who watches that along with this and tells me he did it on purpose… Smh. https://t.co/C6Pb56NXTh

Vince Carter has never been a dirty player in his illustrious career and his apologetic manner (as seen numerous times after the freak incident) speaks for itself.
