Stephen BabbFeatured ColumnistMay 30, 2014

During the waning moments of the third quarter in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili made some serious contact with Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant's face and was correctly whistled for a foul.

It certainly looked like a hard slap. Durant proceeded to miss both free throws and displayed overt discomfort from the line.

The Spurs went on to take Game 5 by a final score of 117-89.
