Dallas Mavericks Luka Doncic returned to the semifinals series against the Phoenix Suns and emerged victorious in Game 3 in which he couldn’t help but taunt Chris Paul as the 36-year veteran perfectly sold a foul by flopping . This particular incident happened in the second quarter.
Doncic was called to an offense after Chris Paul could be seen whipping his head back to sell the foul before hilariously falling to the ground. After the referees whistled, the Slovenian couldn’t believe what had happened and decided to mock CP3 in the most unreal way. Check out the video below.
CP3’s foul call left Luka Doncic at a loss
For those who don’t know, Chris Paul is known for being really good on the flop, so it’s hard to blame Luka Doncic on this one. As a 17-year NBA veteran, Paul has mastered the art of selling fouls, and it showed on Friday against the Mavericks. But to be fair, it’s also pretty hard for the referees to see as it looked like Doncic’s elbow made some contact with Paul’s face. Then again, Paul might as well have sold his flop.
Speaking of the Game 3 showdown between the Mavs and Suns, all the spotlight went to Jalen Brunson, who again had a game-high record (28 points). While Luka Doncic registered 26 points against his name.
On the other hand, all of the Suns’ starters were in double digits, but none of them could pull off an individual 20-minute score. They were led by Jae Crowder with 19 points, Devin Booker had 18 points while CP3 only managed 12 points.
With that streak spanned to just 1 game, it would be interesting to see what drama unfolds in game 4. And whether or not the home team could end their upward trend in this particular semi-final series.
