Default Hitting knees on the pull

Yesterday I was doing power cleans and on a couple of reps I hit the hell out of my knee (under the kneecap area) on my left leg several times. I've done this in the past here and there but never consistently and never to where it hurt this bad either. This would be an indication of what exactly?

My guess is that my shoulders were going up too fast so I was trying to pull back before the bar was over my knees but I'd like a second opinion?

My knee is pretty tender today and I don't want to keep repeating this.
