Based on the video footage it’s really hard to tell whether he did that on purpose. Given that fact, Jamal Murray shouldn’t be surprised at the ejection. A player is never given the benefit of doubt on a low blow groin shot, because of how delicate that area is.
No matter how much you work out and condition yourself, you can never quite prepare yourself for taking a groin attack during a basketball game even with a sports cup on.
Hopefully Tim Hardaway Jr. can make a full recovery.
