Watch Doncic and Booker come face to face after Lukas missed a layup
The Suns and Mavs Really don’t like each other, and their budding rivalry is one of the best things to happen in the NBA. Sunday afternoon in Dallas, the two teams clashed in another tense battle, with both teams seemingly taking control at different times, only for the stars on the other side to kick things off and pull things back to make it solid .
Ultimately, it was the Suns who prevailed thanks to some late-game heroics from Kevin Durant, who was unstoppable in the final minute and buried the go-ahead jumper with just under 12 seconds on the clock.
Luka Doncic would tackle Josh Okogie on the Mavs’ subsequent possession, knocking Okogie to the ground and having a wide-open layup chance which he somehow botched, with Kevin Durant catching the rebound to secure the Suns win.
After that, Devin Booker came over to point and yelled at a referee that Doncic got away with a charge, to which Luka took offense and told Booker to “get off,” and the two got big punches in the face grins while they chirp and push each other a bit.
They were handed leveling techniques since there was nothing really to dust. It’s a bit funny to see Doncic getting mad at someone else chirping the officials given his tendency to get on the umpires, although he may have thought Booker pointing the spot was taunting him because he misses from 3 feet from the basket.
In any case, the Suns won a game with Durant and Booker each going over 35 points while Doncic and Kyrie Irving were each over 30 points as the stars pointed exactly as everyone had hoped. The closing sequence only adds to the intrigue between these two teams and NBA fans’ hope that we’ll get another playoff series between Dallas and Phoenix later this year.
