Angel McCoughtry 'very frustrated' with physical play in the 2013 WNBA Finals

Kent Youngblood of the Star Tribune reported that Atlanta Dream All-Star Angel McCoughtry was frustrated by the physical play after Game 2 of the 2013 WNBA Finals.

2011 WNBA Finals MVP Seimone Augustus responded concisely.

"I’m very frustrated," said McCoughtry, 11-for-42 shooting in two finals games. "I don’t feel like I played in a basketball game. I feel I was in a football match. … I don’t need to be grabbed and pushed to the ground. My elbow is aching right now. I shouldn’t feel like that. I should feel like I played some basketball."

To which Augustus said: "Then don’t play in the WNBA Finals."
