Last night the LA Clippers staged a remarkable comeback against Oklahoma City Thunder, winning their NBA playoff game 101-99 despite being down by 22, and 16 points at points during the contest.
Blake Griffin was integral to that fightback, posting 25 points on the night as the Thunder struggled to deal with the 2014 All-Star.
Serge Ibaka did however find a unique method early on during the game.
With just 45 seconds on the clock, the Thunder power forward, after making contact with a teammate in the paint, ended up punching Griffin in the groin as the Clippers man stretched to make a shot.
While the incident looked accidental, and Ibaka argued as much postgame, Griffin clearly felt it where it hurts as the 25-year-old fell to his knees after the contact.
The NBA will reportedly review the play ahead of Tuesday's Game Five and the story may conjure up bad memories for Griffin.
Back in March 2013 the Clippers star was on the receiving end of another punch below the belt from Ibaka, who was fined $25,000 by the league but escaped suspension.
