Game 5 of the Clippers and Mavericks series was absolutely insane. Paul "Playoff P" George came back to life and dropped 35 points in the 154-111 blowout win.
The Marcus Morris we all know and love also showed up. He didn't put up a ton of stats, but managed to steal some headlines by appearing to intentionally step on Luka Doncic's hurt ankle.

Doncic addressed the controversial play after the game.
While he didn't come out and say it, it sure looks like Doncic thinks that Morris stepped on his ankle on purpose. He also revealed that Morris has been "saying a lot of bad stuff" to him throughout the series.
"I don't want to talk to him. He's just saying a lot of bad stuff to me... I just hope it wasn't intentional. If that was intentional.. that's really bad."

The best part is we're going to get to see these two teams go at it at least one more time. My guess is there will be some more fireworks before this series comes to an end.
Who doesn't love playoff fireworks?
