VIDEO: Marcus Morris steps on Mavs star Luka Doncic’s injured ankle

Marcus Morris, Luka Doncic, Mavs, Clippers

The Dallas Mavericks-vs-Los Angeles Clippers Western Conference playoff series has indeed been filled with several controversies. Marcus Morris added another entry in the chippy affair during Game 5 after it appeared he purposely stepped on the injured left ankle of Mavs superstar Luka Doncic.

The Slovenian guard has been bothered all game by the bum ankle he sustained in Game 3 of the heated series. The brief collision might also be totally inadvertent since Morris did try to reach out to the Mavs star as he fell to the floor.

Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time that the Clippers’ frontline tussled with Luka Doncic after Montrezl Motrezl Harrell unloaded some racially-sensitive profanities at Luka’s way.

Luckily for the Mavs, Doncic seemed all right after the collision and was able to continue with the game. However, the 21-year-old All-Star has been visibly frustrated all night long, as Dallas has been playing catch up for majority of the game.

Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle also picked up two technical fouls and was ejected from the game in the third quarter.

**UPDATE: Here’s a different angle of the incident:
