Thunder’s Chris Paul elbows Russell Westbrook in the groin
As expected, the first-round series between the Houston Rockets and the Oklahoma City Thunder has been gritty and physical. Technical fouls have been slapped, players have hit one another intentionally or unintentionally. And in Game 6, Chris Paul elbowed Russell Westbrook in the groin.
Peep the clip below and judge for yourself if Paul did it on purpose. After all, as two of the best guards in the league, Paul and Westbrook do not hold back when they’re matched up.

As seen in the clip, several players have been hit in the groin. Westbrook is the second victim of Paul behind Ben McLemore. PJ Tucker, too, endured a groin shot from Dennis Schröder. The two got subsequently ejected after a scuffle.
Did Paul do it on purpose? Who knows? He’s probably the savviest veteran in the league and knows how to get away with things. The Thunder are trying to get away with a Game 6 win and force Game 7 against the Rockets.
