Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons escaped a suspension after elbowing Raptors guard Kyle Lowry in the groin during Game 3 of their playoff series.

The incident itself was about as dirty as it gets. You can watch it here.

Despite video evidence to the contrary, Sixers star JJ Redick decided to defend his teammate with an interesting quote.

Butt in the face or elbow to the groin? These are questions grown men wish they never had to answer.

As it is, this series has been testy from the get. With Philly up 2-1, one has to wonder what the next game might bring Sunday afternoon.
