Maybe it was an accident.
(Maybe it wasn't.)
Draymond Green and James Harden have been involved in a few collisions thus far in the Warriors-Rockets NBA playoff second-round series, and they added another one in Game 4 on Monday night. But this time, Green was on the receiving end.
Harden sank a 3-pointer with 9:04 remaining in the third quarter at Toyota Center, but in his follow-through, he caught Green on the head with an elbow, sending the Warriors forward to the floor in pain. Earlier in the evening, Harden was writhing on the floor after being hit in the head with a Kevin Durant elbow on a layup attempt.
The Rockets' Twitter account had no sympathy for Green.
Green, of course, accidentally poked Harden in the eye in Game 1, the effects of which still are readily visible.
This is the fourth time in five years that the Warriors and Rockets have met in the playoffs. There is zero love lost.
