Kawhi was already playing on a bad ankle he already re-injured minutes before without even coming…

I think kawhi reinjuring the ankle moments before puts this attempt into context. It is easier to imagine Zaza saying “oo kawhi just hurt his ankle, let’s test it.” Not particularly trying to injure him but send a message a minimum.

The second jump here is just too much. Initially I thought it was nothing, but the second jump into his feet has to have some intention of “I want kawhis ankle to land on my foot”- the movement is just too unnatural, it’s not contesting the shot at all. (Crazy because I at first thought it was nothing. But after watching it a million times it had to be intentional)
