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.”
