Luka Doncic Had To Be Held Back From Fighting Marcus Morris
Luka Doncic is well and truly fed up with Marcus Morris Snr.
So much so that the Dallas Mavericks star had to be held back by NBA officials and his own teammates following an ugly incident against the Los Angeles Clippers.
With the score tied at 25-25 in their playoff tie in the Orlando 'bubble', 21-year-old starlet Doncic drove past the Clippers defence and scored at the rim with relative ease to put his side ahead.
But just as he was releasing the ball to take the shot, Doncic received a whack on the back of the head from recovering defender Morris - and Luka wasn't best pleased.
After his appeals for a foul fell on deaf ears, the red mist descended upon Doncic as he made his way towards Morris to confront him.
Fortunately, the Slovenian guard was stopped dead in his tracks by his 7 foot 4 inch teammate Boban Marjanovic.
NBA officials rushed onto the court, but Doncic had already turned his back on the situation - perhaps realising that he was never going to get past Mavs' man mountain Boban.

This isn't the first time the two rivals have clashed in the safeguarded zone of Walt Disney World either.
The Mavericks and clippers have been going back and fourth ever since Game 1 of their playoff series.
But in Game 5 things took an ugly turn when Morris stepped on Doncic's injured left ankle - many questioning whether he had done so intentionally.
And it appears things really boiled over in Game 6 as the usually cool-headed Doncic, in fact, lost his cool.
Mavericks' Luka Doncic on Clippers' Marcus Morris ejection: "Terrible foul. Two games in a row he did something like that. I really hoped the first one wasn't on purpose but looking back at the foul this game, you know what I think. I don't want to deal with that kind of player." pic.twitter.com/em8UgPGjlB- Ben Golliver (@BenGolliver) August 30, 2020
