Luka Doncic was furious with the refs during and after the Dallas Mavericks’ loss to the Indiana Pacers.
Per ESPN, After his complaints to the referees didn’t receive the desired response, Doncic wanted to be sure that the reason for his displeasure was on the record.
“They hit me in the face, and that should be a foul,” Doncic said. “They should look at it. I think the rule is when you get hit in the face, they’ve got to look if it’s flagrant or no, right? Like I said, I was hit in the face three times. Two of them was not a foul.”
After Oladipo hit two free throws to push the Pacers’ lead to three points with 13 seconds remaining, Doncic confronted referee Tyler Ford during the timeout.
“He can’t f—ing hit me in the mouth!” Doncic shouted at Ford.
“They didn’t care,” Doncic said after the game. “It was clear. Everybody saw on the Jumbotron.”
