A rivalry is brewing between Los Angeles Clippers forward Marcus Morris St. and Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Dončić.
The former was ejected Sunday in the first quarter of Game 6 after committing a flagrant foul 2 against Dončić, only adding to the contention boiling up between the duo.
In the final minute of the frame as Dončić drove to the hoop, Morris swiped down to attempt a block, and in doing so, also hit him in the head causing the Mavericks star to hit the floor.
The brutal foul caused quite the commotion, too.
“It was a terrible play. What can I say?” Doncic said after the 111-97 loss which sent Dallas packing, via House of Highlights. “It’s two games in a row he did something like that. I really hoped the first game it wasn’t on purpose, but looking back on the foul this game, you know what I think.
“I don’t want to deal with that kind of players. Just move on.”
Morris in Game 5 stepped on Dončić’s left foot. The veteran forward claimed he didn’t intend to injure the Mavs star.
We’ll see if this beef carries into next season.
