Video: Marcus Morris Seen Purposely Stepping on Luka Doncic’s Injured Ankle

Marcus Morris Luka Doncic

The Los Angeles Clippers aren’t just one of the NBA’s best teams, they’re also perhaps the edgiest team in the game.

As they continued to open up a huge lead in Game 5 against the Dallas Mavericks, forward Marcus Morris stepped on the ankle of Mavs superstar Luka Doncic.

Doncic lost his shoe as a result, and the video of the incident begs the question of whether Morris stepped on the Slovenian native on purpose.

Doncic injured his left ankle in Game 3 and had to miss the rest of the game as a result. Still, he was able to play in Game 4, and he delivered a monster performance that culminated with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to win the game.

This has been a series that has seen more than its share of fireworks. Doncic has been involved in most of these incidents, including some trash-talking with Montrezl Harrell in Game 3.

Doncic does deserve plenty of credit for gutting it out for a second straight game on a painful sprained ankle. Perhaps some other players in the NBA wouldn’t be able to take the court under similar circumstances.
