Cody Zeller's dirty move

Look at Cody's right hand and it's obvious that he pulled Nix' hand into him (how else would his hand, on the opposite side of Nix' arm, move with Nix' arm without delay or separation?). Plus he reacts simultaneously (there is a slight delay if you really get hit, unless you see it coming) and Nix would have reacted differently if he was trying to get away with something. And this is on top of Zeller elbowing Nix earlier -- although I can't say if it was intentional or not based on the replays I've seen. It's one thing for your temper to get the best of you, but to premeditate an action and try to make another player look dirty is much worse in my opinion -- although I guess you can argue that his temper could have gotten the best of him in the moment...

I'm also amazed that none of the commentators could see it. I guess when you're a commentator you see something (easy to miss the first time) and then focus on the story or commentary rather than trying to see what really happened.

Edit/P.S. I posted this video because the commentators were throwing Nix under the bus and I don't think that is appropriate. I hate to see someone wrongly accused...
