Anthony Davis‘ foot had a meeting with Suns forward Jae Crowder‘s baby maker during Tuesday night’s game … and it looked just as painful as it sounds.
It all went down less than a minute into Game 2 of L.A. and Phoenix’s 1st-round matchup in the NBA playoffs … when AD kicked his right leg out while attempting a deep 2-point shot — and made solid contact with Crowder’s groin.
Understandably, Crowder immediately fell to the court in pain … but to add insult to injury, the guy was called for a defensive foul while contesting the shot!!!
To even things out … Davis also got called for a flagrant 1 foul, which gave Crowder 2 free throws and the Suns the next possession.
Of course, Davis’ move looked similar to one of Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green‘s infamous groin kicks — something TNT analyst Reggie Miller referenced during the game broadcast.
However, Miller pointed out he believed Davis’ kick was unintentional … which set Green off on Twitter.
“So it’s unintentional now @ReggieMillerTNT?,” Green said Tuesday night. “You referenced me as if mines was also unintentional? None of y’all said that during the time. Clarify your point? Would love to know…”
He added … “Because if you’re saying mines was unintentional, there’s a lot of cowards that just went silent? And if you’re saying it’s intentional on my behalf but not here, then I shouldn’t have been referenced @ReggieMillerTNT just curious.”
Davis finished the game with 34 points and 10 rebounds as the Lakers tied up the series at 1 game apiece with the 109-102 win.
Crowder finished with 8 points, 6 rebounds and 1 bag of ice on his crotch.
