Jae Crowder Getting Suspended Over Anthony Davis Cheap Shot?

Jae Crowder Getting Suspended Over Anthony Davis Cheap Shot?

The Phoenix Suns defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 117-105 on Wednesday night.

Because it was a preseason outing that both LeBron James and Russell Westbrook were set to miss, the affair wasn’t initially supposed to be a particularly contentious one.

Suns forward Jae Crowder changed all that.

In the second quarter, with Phoenix up by 20, Crowder seemingly purposely tried to injure Lakers big man Anthony Davis.

The video speaks for itself:

Some have argued that Crowder’s actions were retribution for this dirty play by Davis in last season’s playoff matchup. Others say it was payback for this sequence earlier in the game:

Regardless of what spurned on Crowder’s actions, they are unacceptable. Davis has a history of injuries and what he did could have taken him out of commission for the entire season.

Last year the NBA stood idly by while one player flippantly fractured another’s wrist and did nothing about it. That set a terrible precedent. Will they right that wrong this time around? Time will tell.
