Multiple members of the Warriors accused Clippers forward Glen Big Baby Davis of dirty play for his involvement in an incident that forced Jermaine ONeal from Game 6 with a knee injury.
Golden State defeated L.A. 100-99 at Oracle Arena on Thursday to force a Game 7. The victory may have cost them their veteran center, who had been called into greater action in the series following the loss of starting center Andrew Bogut to a rib injury.
With a little more than nine minutes remaining in the second quarter and the Warriors leading 28-25, ONeal collected the ball following a Clippers possession and looked up the court. Before he could pass the ball, a bent-over Davis stumbled forward into ONeals lower body in an awkward, late attempt at securing the loose ball. The force of Daviss arrival bent ONeals leg back and hyper-extended his right knee. ONeals right leg buckled before he fell to the court.
ONeal immediately left the game and did not return. He departed with two points (on 1-for-1 shooting) and three rebounds in two minutes. The Warriors announced that ONeal has suffered a sprained right knee and that he will undergo an MRI on Friday.
The 35-year-old center said that he would give it a go in Game 7 at the Staples Center on Saturday.

My knees do that on their own with no pain - they hyperextend 15 degrees. When I show it to someone who has had a knee injury, they wince.
At least in this case we can't accuse them of east coast bias. :)
If it were O’Neal who had injured Big Baby, the fine for the Warriors would be to try and feed him for a full season. That would probably bankrupt the Warriors in short order.
The fish stinks from the head
