Kevin Love stepped on Luis Scola's face during the Timberwolves' 100-91 win over the Rockets last night. Was it intentional? Love says it wasn't, of course, and he apologized to Scola immediately after the game.
"He was kind of right there, and you know, I've got size-19 feet. So he just happened to be there, I had nowhere to go. I got kind of tripped up, and I just had nowhere to step. He was right there, it happened to be his face just like in Houston where it happened to be my groin."
Love was referring to this incident, where Scola threw a ball off his groin in an earlier game this season.
The apology was a nice touch, but for some reason, it seems a bit disingenuous to me. Mostly because Love referenced the groin incident, which seemed a little tongue-in-cheek to me.
What do you think? Was it incidental, or intentional? Should Love be suspended or punished in some way? There was no foul called, but that doesn't mean the league can't review it. What's your take?
