Denver Nuggets' Jusuf Nurkic picks up technical trolling Suns' Markieff Morris – Arizona Sports
Wednesday night’s game between the Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets was not exactly a high-profile matchup.
The Suns, who had lost five straight games, were visiting the Nuggets, who had dropped nine of their last 10.
But lucky for the fans, the game, which was won by the Suns 110-96, was not without its entertaining moments.
At the end of the first quarter, Phoenix’s Marcus Morris made a shot from half court.
Then, in the third quarter, Denver’s Jusuf Nurkic picked up a technical foul after scoring against the Suns’ Markieff Morris.
Nurkic apparently took offense to Morris flopping on defense (no call was made, leading to an easy layin for the Nugget), and when he caught the ball after it went through the hoop, gently placed it on Morris’ chest.
