White on white violence was on full display Thursday night when the Denver Nuggets and Dallas Mavericks went to war. Nikola Jokic teabagged Luka Doncic and it might sneaky be one of the best moments of the 2018-19 season.
With the Mavericks trailing 98-97 with 20 seconds left on the clock, Luka Doncic put the god damn team on his back and willed his way to the basket for a tomahawk dunk. Shades of Michael Jordan. Clutch levels through the roof.
Paul Millsap and Mason Plumlee needn’t have clocked into work that night. Their efforts were futile. Luka could not and would not be stopped. Hand this man the Rookie of the Year award right now.
Oh, and on top of everything, Millsap got called on a foul giving Luka the ANDDD ONEEEEE.
But Luka missed the free throw. And he left 5 seconds on the clock.
Enter Nikola Jokic.
That was like when a wrestler thinks they just eliminated the last competitor in the Royal Rumble and then all of a sudden, someone sneaks into the ring because he was never really eliminated and tosses that final wrestler out of the ring for the win.
Hey Luka, eat a dick.
