Clippers' Marcus Morris Ejected After Flagrant Foul on Mavs' Luka Doncic


Marcus Morris went after Luka Doncic again, except this time there were repercussions.

The Clippers forward was ejected from Sunday’s Game 6 first-round matchup against the Dallas Mavericks after getting tangled up with Doncic trying to block is lane to the hoop, then swatting the Mavs star in the back of the head in what was presumably an attempt for the ball, sending Doncic to the ground.

Doncic took exception to Morris and the two had to be restrained from one another.

Morris was assessed a Flagrant 2 and ejected from the game.

There was debate about whether or not Morris should even be playing in this game due to an incident with Doncic in Game 5 in which Morris appeared to intentionally step on Doncic’s ankle and risk injuring him.

The Mavericks pled the league to look at the play, as well as another in which Morris undercuts Doncic’s landing spot on a 3-pointer.

Morris did not face any discipline for the league, nor apologized for his actions and instead defended himself that he was not trying to injure anyone and that it was a simple mistake.

The Clippers forward considers himself an enforcer, but he has gained a reputation of taking it too far.

In the last seven seasons, Morris has 59 technical fouls with eight flagrants and four ejections.

During the preseason as a member of the Knicks, Morris was ejected for slamming a basketball off the head of Wizards forward Justin Anderson. Later in the season he appeared to intentionally knee Ben Simmons in the head after the two got tangled and fell to the ground.

Doncic was asked about Morris after Game 5, but said he just wanted to move on.

“I don’t want to talk to him,” Doncic said. “He's just saying a lot of bad stuff to me all the game. I just don't want to talk to him. I just want to move on. Like I say, everybody is going to have their own opinion. I just hope it wasn't intentional. If that was intentional, that's really bad."
