Luka Doncic, Montrezl Harrell had a very entertaining Game 3 in the first-round series between the Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Clippers. The two players had a little scuffle when Doncic told Harrell to stop flopping, then the Clippers big man called Luka a 'b--- a-- white boy', which raised a lot of eyebrows around the league.
Even Jay Williams called out Harrell for his comment, explaining that if Doncic dared to say something like that to him, this story would've been a lot bigger.
Well, it looks like Trez came into his sense and he decided to apologize to Luka prior to the 4th game of the series. Doncic approached Harrell, they shook hands and exchanged a couple of words.
That is all part of the past now, more so after Doncic said it was 'OK' and nothing had happened between them. Luka addressed the issue after Game 4.
"It was OK. No worries,” Doncic said. “A lot of emotions on the court, especially with the playoffs. Sometimes you say things you don’t want to say. He apologized. I respect that. So no problems.”
Emotions took over and things that shouldn't be said were said but now everything is clear. This shows how passionate this postseason has been. Nobody wants to miss anything, nobody wants to lose and sometimes players don't think before speaking or acting. Good thing these two cleared the air and now we're ready to see more basketball.
Doncic somehow took revenge on Game 4, dropping 43 on the Clippers, including a game-winner to tie the series 2 games per side.
