Rudy Gay: Injured Jaw was a ‘Dirty Play’

(Team USA and Kings forward Rudy) Gay took a vicious elbow to the top of his mouth in the third quarter of Team USA’s Thursday win over Lithuania, and the damage done by big man Darjus Lavrinovic will be coming home with him after Sunday’s gold medal game against Serbia and this FIBA World Cup comes to an end.

 

While Gay had to leave the game because of the hit, he voiced his displeasure with the Lithuanians in the handshake line after the game. That sparked a shouting match between the two teams and included USA coach Mike Krzyzewski waving his arms amid the chaos and trying to play peacemaker.

“I think (the elbow) had a little bit to do with (the situation afterward),” Gay said. “It was a dirty play, man. It was a dirty play.”

Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
