Draymond Green shoulders Dellavedova to ground, Delly responds with low blow (VINE)

This play is pretty much a Rorschach test for your fandom in this series — fans from both sides will see the other team as making the cheap play.

It starts in a transition situation when Stephen Curry cuts right, and Draymond Green stops short to give Matthew Dellavedova a hard shoulder to the ground as he tried to track Curry. That could have/should have been a foul (moving screen at the least).

Dellavedova responded with a low blow, catching Green in the hips and maybe a little lower. The people who think Delly is a dirty player are going to point to this.

Draymond Green’s mom is in that camp.

It will be interesting to see if the league responds to this with fines or flagrants on Wednesday.
