Members of the Warriors told Yahoo Sports that they believed it was “a dirty play”
From that angle, it’s tough to tell exactly what happened. Iguodala definitely clutched his knee afterward.
It seemed Paul was just trying to get around Iguodala, to steal the rebound or be in position to swipe the ball after Iguodala caught it. I wouldn’t assume dirty intent from what I can see.
But perception matters. If the Warriors think Paul made a dirty play, whether or not he actually did, that means something in how they’ll respond.
