The Los Angeles Clippers sent the Dallas Mavericks home on Sunday with a 111-97 loss and a Marcus Morris bitchslap to the head of Luka Doncic. This after he appeared to intentionally step on the Mavs star's injured ankle in Game 5.
The bitchslap earned Morris an ejection and didn't slow down Doncic all that much, but it did help end the series with some fireworks.

Luka wasn't a fan of getting slapped upside the head and talked about that after the game. Morris saw Doncic's response and commented on the Instagram post with a savage comment, "Cry me a river. Clips in 6."

At the end of the day Doncic didn't have enough help to compete for an entire series. He also had to deal with Marcus Morris stepping on his ankle and slapping him in the head.
All things considered he held his own nicely. Maybe the Mavericks need to sign a guy to handle guys like Morris.
