Mavericks’ Luka Doncic slams reporter after Suns fan incident

Superstar Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks struggled on Wednesday night against the Phoenix Suns.

He injured his ankle first while attempting to protect Kevin Durant. In the fourth quarter, a Suns supporter was expelled from the presence of the Mavericks star.

While covering the game for ESPN, Tim MacMahon caught this moment:

Doncic had some choice words for MacMahon during the postgame press conference following the Mavericks’ 132-109 loss to the Suns.

Doncic stated that the fan had said many worse things during the game, while MacMahon asserted that the fan was only two rows behind press row and he heard what he yelled when the Mavs’ star had him ejected. Luka also made sure to point out that MacMahon is, in his opinion, the first person to write something negative about him.

Doncic received a technical foul at the conclusion of Wednesday night’s home game against Kevin Durant and the Phoenix Suns. Doncic was called for a technical foul after going after referee David Guthrie.

Despite the ankle issue, Doncic played 38 minutes and gave it his all on a difficult night. With 34 points, he was the Mavericks’ top scorer. He made 11 of his 24 field goals and 8 of his 12 free throw attempts. In addition, he was performing general floor duties. The Mavericks star disheveled five times, yet he still finished with nine assists.

Sports have always included heckling, and when spectators go too far, players frequently want to be taken out of the game. In recent years, there have been prominent cases of this involving LeBron James and Russell Westbrook.

At this moment, it’s unclear if the Suns fan in question—whom Mavericks security removed—had been swearing at Luka all night or if he had just said what McMahon reported in his tweet and Doncic didn’t want to hear it.
