Nikola Jokic and Markieff Morris didn't make it to the end of the Nuggets-Heat game on Monday night. Late in the 4th quarter Morris fouled Jokic as he was bringing the ball down the court, the NBA's reigning MVP didn't like the foul and retaliated.
Jokic laid a hit on an unsuspecting Morris that would have been flagged in the NFL. Morris went down, and stayed down for a little while his teammates rushed to confront Jokic over the cheap shot.

Nobody on the Heat was more upset about Jokic's shot to Morris' back than Jimmy Butler, of course. He wanted to take things outside.

Most basketball guys are fake tough. I don't know if Butler is, but I do know the Jokic and Morris brothers are not. Things could get very interesting.
