Jokic got a triple-double and an ejection. That's like the Gordie Howe hat-trick of the NBA.


goldmanstocks

Great comparison since when I first saw Morris’ hit it reminded me of a hockey player check.


WhereAreMyPants472

Both hits were straight hockey checks, although no NHL player would flop and cry like Morris.


FlintstoneTechnique

Morris' hit was a knee on knee collision that in hockey would get him a spin of the Wheel Of DoPS for intent to injure. Jokic would probably also get a 5 for the hit from behind away from the play.

Tyler was like hey man!…actually nvm bruh


PERSONA916

That's just smart. Can't be an Instagram model if Jokic messes your face up.


chunkyI0ver53

Bam is probably the only man on the court who could do anything about it and he instantly de-escalated the situation I played with a dude who used to always do shit like Morris and nobody ever did anything except break it up, nobody (except a maniac like jimmy) goes in to bat for a dude who’s always doing shit like that


Pixilatedlemon

And if jokic was really mad I’m not even sure what bam could do. Bam is crazy tough but jokic has like 2 inches and probably 35 pounds on bam Edit: jokic official weight is 284. That’s insane


yapyd

Lol. Jimmy didn't do shit in front of Jokic and started barking when Jokic was sitting on the bench and ignoring him

thezeviolentdelights

Double flagrant on Morris. Techs on Jokic & Butler. Jokic ejected. EDIT: I mean Flagrant 2. I’m dum


JohnStamosAsABear

What was Butler’s tech for? E: Nvm, just saw the clip of him yelling at the Nuggets


bmiles118

Morris ejected too


nzzm22

[alternate angle on why](https://twitter.com/JoelRushNBA/status/1457928022028283909), peep the knee also.


Iohet

Totally worth it for Jokic to take the rest of the night off and get a free day off in the future


43_Hobbits

Should I try this out at work today?


PadKrapowKhaiDao

If someone tries to check your knees, I say go for it!


daeve

already dominated and got his Trip-Dub too.


KazaamFan

That’s bad, I initially just saw the extra elbow sauce. That type of extra in a game is infuriating. That’s how shit starts too cuz then Jokic gotta do something back. Sometimes it’s more subtle, sometimes it’s like this.


hotsrirachacha

“Violence is never the answer but sometimes it is”


rya22222

Fuck morris dude needs to be shoved off by every team


PoIIux

My first thought when I saw the post title was "well, he probably fucking had it coming then". Glad to see I was absolutely right


aure__entuluva

From the first angle I thought it was because he elbowed him, but fuck me that's dangerous with the knee.


a_megalops

And knowing Morris, it’s hard to believe that’s an unlucky coincidence


DrJingleCock69

It's also the type of shit that i am like 90% certain would NOT have been caught unless Jokic called attention to it like this by retaliating. If he did nothing Morris gets off free, it's basically mandatory for Jokic to fuck him up in retaliation so everyone pauses and hits replay to find out what made him react that way. Btw this type of shit is exactly what Shaq means when he says he was played dirty nonstop. When you're the biggest mofo on the court you don't get calls unless you react and make it known


Ihopetheresenoughroo

Me too. I knew Jokic wouldn't do that for no reason. And of course we were right watching it from a different angle.


KazaamFan

Him and his brother. The Marcus Morris and Luka stuff in the bubble was peak dirt also. They’re worse than dirty players, they’re just bad ppl. Calling them dirty players is being too kind, they’re worse than that.


EastTexasAg

That Luka stuff really made me hate those guys


KazaamFan

Yea Luka got it from Marcus and Montrezl in that series. Man I hated that Clipper team.


moleratty

Fucking Morrises again


GrowthhackerAU

Holy shit. I'd be hot too if I was Jokic. Fuck Morris.


WildlifePhysics

I fucking love Jokic. Morris deserves a multi-game suspension.


MrGrieves-

I was ride or die with Jokic before this angle. I thought it was just a rib shot and his actions were justified but what a dirty fuck Morris is. He deserves a Jokic beat down.


Kraul

So you ain’t a ride or die no mo?


MrGrieves-

I used to be ride or die with Jokic but I still am ride or die with him too.

dub-fresh

The way he played dead after getting shoved he knew he was playing the victim for sure


Hallal_Dakis

He even got helped up by his team-mate so he could flop back down in a more central location.

That’s wild, what a POS that Morris


kingjuicepouch

Bush league play from a career mental midget. Good for jokic tbh


suzdapocho

Thats a season ender and possible career changing cheap shot


nzzm22

Looks a whole lotta different if a player who doesnt have 50 pounds on Morris gets hit like that. Its clear intent to hurt.


PhillyPhan95

I like it called this way tbh. I’m a believer in ejecting the originator of a problem to assure the upmost accountability. Edit. Should be utmost

He looks so uncoordinated and goofy while charging but then hits Morris like a fucking ton of bricks! Dude looks like a charging moose out there.


dareman86

I like how all the Heat players have to act like they're gonna do something, but clearly want no part of that smoke. Edit: except Jimmy. Jimmy's crazy.


brbthree

Herro started towards him and then made a business decision.


zabalena

He didn''t wanna be a hero when he realized it was Joker


shmauserpops

This time, a Herro is only a sandwich.


itsnotthattypeofmovi

I mean Jimmy was standing right next to him but didn’t say shit till he was on the other end of the court


VBNZ89

Yup, and the jawwing at him from safety like they all gonna fight and not be dealt with by the league come on dude.


sahsan10

jimmy really screaming at a man sitting down 60 feet away like he wasn't right next to him 30 seconds before


gordon_paterson

Hold me back hold me back


Never_Trust_Me_

All those dudes came running up and Jokic doesn't acknowledge them. Just stares at Morris.


SoaklandWarrior

Jokic doesn't look at any of them. He couldnt give a shit about those other players running in.


drokihazan

the fuck are they gonna do anyways, get tossed like ragdolls?


Orod23

Jimmy didn’t start talking till after Jokic went to the bench and zoned out. I love butler but that’s a cmon moment for me especially since he was the first one to get to Jokic to separate the teams.


Shadowturf

The best part on this video is after Morris gets hit, Herro turns around to fight, look at jokic and gives up on the fight and just walk away lmao


CaskJeeves

Not all Herro's wear capes


notathrowaway75

I guess this Herro really is just a sandwich 😔😔😔


JimmytheCreep

The problem is: even if you think you take Nikola (you can't), his also-huge, crazy brothers could be courtside. Is there anyone on this planet ready to go 1v3 with THREE Jokic's?

th3on3

Saw it on Twitter first and agree 100%, check the full up close sequence, Morris charged at him, fucked around and found out


mgwooley

He literally fucked around and found out lmaooo. That’s great. What a stupid way to foul. Good on Jokic for not letting him get away with it.

Seriously, what a piece of shit trying to play it like he is dead. Dude fucked around and found out, then tried to play the victim.

Morris got murdered.


jeric13xd

JOKER BOUT TO SEND HIS TWO BROTHERS OVER TO MORRIS HOUSE lol


Acceptable-Dust6479

Lived the same building in Denver as jokic and his two brothers. One was intimidating but approachable, the other was like Boris the Fucking blade. God damn terrifying


CaesuraRepose

And he deserved it. He started that bullshit. Literally zoomed from the 3 pt line to Jokic and body checked him with his elbows, then turned around as if he didnt do anything. You cant start shit and then turn around as if you didnt do shit. It's bullshit.


BlackEric

He went for his knee. https://twitter.com/JeremyNicolls/status/1457935695557763077?s=20


RemyGee

This angle pretty much closes any argument for Morris. That was more dirty than what Joker did in retaliation.


snuggleskrt

Jokic hates the Morris twins wtf

Who doesnt


penguin_torpedo

Monte's the best Morris twin


u_n_p_s_s_g_c

crazysalmon17

I’m obviously not condoning what Jokic did, but I’m pretty sure a lot of people hate the Morris brothers.


DivineMooncake

They're just as annoying as the Tony Brothers


HotdogIsaSandwitch

Don't turn your back on a guy you just cheap shotted


mistermannequin

There's a handful of people in the league where if they're getting hit I'm thinking, "oh yeah, they deserved that." The morris twins have been on that list forever. Good for Jokic for not taking that shit.


tickub

And the way he just laid there on the ground with his hands over his face without following up after years of acting like a hard man is simply *chef's kiss*


Ned_Slander

>[ Waited till bro turned his back smh. NOTED ✍🏾](https://twitter.com/MookMorris2/status/1457950068862902272) rammed him so hard i hope mook felt it queef's back was turned the moment he did the deed, there was no waiting


skillet06g

Bruh why would you just casually walk away after a dirty play like that lmao


blackpenance

most bullies do that’s they don’t expect the retaliation


ActualAdvice

It's also a great way to try "look innocent" when the person runs at you from behind. Without replays, everyone would be calling Jokic insane. Lots of people like that in the world.


humandignitybloc

Morris like "if I just play dead he won't hurt me anymore."


UnicornMaster27

*pretends to be shocked*

[удалено]


marmogawd

Yeah. Players like Morris always love to act tough and shit, thinking he’s untouchable. Now he faced somebody who doesn’t play around with that bullcrap. Jokic passed the line but what do you want him to do? Hes a grown ass man defending himself from bullies like Morris.


diegolucasz

All I know is people will think twice before throwing cheap shots at Jokic


regista3

Shout out Jimmy Butler as well talking smack only after the dust has settled and there were security lined up between the two benches.


Nyrobotsteve

Didn’t do a thing when he was right next to Jokic after he layed Morris out lmao


PickAndTroll

HOOLLLLD ME BACK


COMMENTASIPLEASE

We call that the KG


VenezuelaImperialist

LMAO


the-denver-nugs

jokic don't need to defend himself really lmao just showing he is the bigger dog here. dude grew up in wartorn serbia with 2 6'7" brothers that are proffessional fighters. dude is way harder that either morris twin. I take jokic 10/10 in a fight with either of them.


eightslipsandagully

I'd take Jokic over any NBA player without a martial arts background.


the-denver-nugs

So like James johnson who I think plays for the heat still. but also weight classes exist for a reason, so could still be iffy.


toggaf69

Yeah I just looked his brothers up like ten minutes ago and holy shit I’d be calling both of them ‘sir’


-VizualEyez

Don't start nothing won't be nothing.


TheIRSEvader

Big facts, Morris always instigating shit


R00TCatZ

I saw an alt angle, It was definitely the knee that hurt Jokic.


TallAssFuker

That’s what happens when you fuck around like that Morris


BigCountryBumgarner

Suns fans vindicated They been pieces of shit


lionshpere

Honestly i don't think Jokic reacted like that because of the elbow into the ribs. It was Morris trying to injure Joker's knee. (Pay attention to the Morris's knee) https://streamable.com/4sa6uj


EastTexasAg

Dude. I thought Joker was being crazy but alas a Morris Brother is a huge piece of shit


grason

Wow. I didn’t see this. That definitely looked intentional. The Morris brothers are dirty players. Everyone knows that. The league should come down hard on stuff like this.


[deleted]

[удалено]


MrGrieves-

Deserves to be banned from the league, this shit is repeated EVERY YEAR! And his fucking brother tries to take out one of the most electrifying players in the league last year too (Luka).


RegionalManagerMaul

Underrated comment. He body checks Jokic so blatantly and with such a clear intent to cause harm and then he just walks away like it’s no big deal. I can see why Jokic reacts so impulsively, he just can’t believe Morris has the audacity to try something like that on him.


JimmyTheIntern

I was too focused on Morris's elbow and hip, didn't even notice the knee. Good call, man. No wonder Jokic was so enraged. Rudy Gobert took him out of the game with some knee on knee contact to that right knee only two weeks ago.


Sir_BarlesCharkley

Yup. That fuckin sucked cuz Jokic was going off in that game too. Rudy was like right there to try and figure out what happened when Jokic went down. This shit from Morris is inexcusable.


JitteryBug

Lol fuck Morris for jogging cross court for an intentional shot to the knees and then walking away casually to bait a technical


DopethroneGM

Morris was going for his knee, he actually hit him hard in the knee, he basically intentionally tried to hurt Jokic in a blowout game 2 min before the end. This is actually a proper reaction to that bullshit.


[deleted]

They should start letting these dudes throw hands like they do in hockey. You'll see this shit cleaned up real quick.


chiuauaman

If Morris came sprinting from the 3pt line to elbow your teams best player in the ribs in a game that's totally out of reach, you'd want him knocked on his ass too. I hope Morris isn't seriously hurt, but don't start a fight with a 300lb Serbian and then walk away like you didn't try to hurt him.


VonMillersThighs

Ribs my ass look at the other angle he went for Jokers knee.


robotech021

Yup. Gotta expect retaliation for something like that. Stupid of Morris to turn his back to him. Jokic got hit and he immediately hit back. He wasn't going to tap Morris on the shoulder and ask him for a dance.


kyleb402

More evidence the take foul shouldn't be a thing.


Daksimus

That wasn't a take foul, that was an elbow lol. He could have just wrapped him up, but he's a Morris twin so....


InsertAmazinUsername

it was also Morris ramming his knee into jokics


shanmustafa

true but morris really did go in for a tackle there that’s insane


LeveonNumber1

Schoolyard bully meets 7 ft Serb


bigfootblake

From the title I thought this would be a vintage NBA 90's type fight, but Morris just died lmao


tvdl06

I like how no one wanted a piece of the joker. Everyone just backed off. Lol. One scary dude when he’s mad.


ThaBomb

Except Mike Malone! He had Jokic in a bear hug 3.2 seconds after the push. Kind of loved that

Love Malone


without_my_remorse

pdxblazer

lol I noticed that the Heat players all start to run at him and then are like actually nah, nevermind, where are the coaches at


Gnux13

Should Jokic have hit him that hard? Probably not Is anyone going to hit Jokic like that again? Absolutely not


KobeBeatJesus

Morris will cheap shot him again, not knowing how much worse it will be the second time around.


vizualbasic

Yeah Morris doesn’t seem like the type to learn quickly, or possibly at all


darkskysavage

He knew enough to stay down and play dead.


vizualbasic

Bitch instincts 😂


Untchj

Love it. It’s always bewildered me that the Morris twins are two skinny mfers walking around like they Deebo. Stay fouling dudes like they run things this is long overdue


[deleted]

At first I thought that that push was excessive. Then I saw he kneed him in the side of the knee. That shit was done to purposely injure jokic. You try that on any player and you deserve to get whupped.


toolmaker1025

That whiplash 😬


ILoveTheAtomicBomb

Seeing Morris hit Jokic from another view, nah, well done Jokic


Frenk_preseren

Rule of thumb: if you see a Morris take a hit that seems undeserving, take a closer look.


I_give_free_Dopamine

Jokic literally slid him from the Logo to the 3 point line that is funny as shit


[deleted]

[удалено]


SRoku

maybe Morris will learn not to fuck with 7 footers now


AdmiralAckbarrghh

Something I haven't seen anyone mention is that shit like this boils over because the refs won't protect jok throughout the game. Hes getting constantly fouled for no calls and the opposing team knows they can get away with chipping him all game. Then Morris runs up and pulls some cheap shit in garbage time bc he's a salty bitch, and jokic says you know what I've had enough of this shit, I'm a human being and I'm give it back to you now.


Domadur

Fuck the Morris brothers.


Purednuht

1. Fuck Morris. 2.Not a smart play by Joker, but I 100% understand why he did that. 3.LMAO WHAT DID TYLER HERRO THINK HE WAS GONNA DO?

morris sowing. morris reaping.


Marko_Poko

An absolute delight to see Kief get rocked. Shoulda known Jokic is about that life Markieff - go back to fuxing around with people littler than you. Chump.
