The Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks are getting ready for a playoff push, and the games will get more tense as the end of the season draws closer.
Play like this is simply uncalled for though.
Dirk Nowitzki had his back to the basket and was backing down Shaun Livingston when the Warriors guard hit the Mavericks forward with a blatant low blow.
All that was missing was a Ric Flair "WOO" and playing it up to the crowd. You just don't do this in an NBA game.
