Oklahoma Thunder's Steven Adams got a nasty surprise in the first half of Game three of the Western Conference finals today when he was kicked in the groin by Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green.

After lengthy deliberation the refs looked back at the replay and pinged Green for a flagrant foul, meaning Adams got two free throws and Oklahoma also won possession back.

Green was allowed to stay in the game but will be sent off if he commits another flagrant foul.

Twitter reacted strongly to Green's indiscretion. Here is some of the best reaction:
