Did Marcus Morris Intentionally Step on Luka Doncic’s Injured Ankle?

Fibo Quantum

  • Marcus Morris is stupid enough to intentionally step on Dallas Mavericks’ superstar Luka Doncic’s already gimpy left ankle.
  • Does Morris have a history of being a dirty player?
  • Should Adam Silver and the NBA league-office suspend Morris for Game 6?

Doncic’s buzzer-beating, step-back triple on Sunday broke the Los Angeles Clippers‘ back. Luka’s overtime dagger gave life to the Mavericks, knotting the first-round best-of-seven playoff series at 2-2.

Doncic was a game-time decision due to a left ankle sprain after Game 4. It certainly didn’t look as if it was a problem at all for the young stud. He had his way with the Clips’ defense, recording a monstrous triple-double (43 points, 17 rebounds, and 13 assists). Does that do anything for you? Well, it should—goodness, gracious.

Insert Marcus Morris

Instead of being a frenzied media story twisted in knots, Morris clearly and intentionally stepped on Doncic’s bad ankle in Game 5. Check the video out for yourself, but please don’t tell me it looks incidental. Maybe Marcus felt like the only chance for the Clippers in Game 5 was to debilitate Luka? If that was Morris’ thinking, he was on point as L.A. went up 3-2 in the series with the win. Watch the video for more.
