Luka Doncic’s acting skills were on display once again in the NBA playoff action.

In the Mavs’ 25-point blowout of the Utah Jazz, the European star got into a tussle with Hassan Whiteside. The altercation led to benches clearing on both sides, some pushing and shoving, and a pair of ejections.

Late in the contest, with Dallas leading big, Doncic attempted to put Whiteside on a poster with an emphatic slam dunk. The jam didn’t go quite as planned for the Mavs star.

Not only does Doncic travel while trying to get a little extra elevation from the floor, but he’s subsequently stuffed by the Utah defender. A foul was called but it looks like Whiteside got all ball on this block.

Watch it all unfold below.

After getting embarrassed at the rim, Doncic then falls to the ground while holding onto Whiteside’s arms. In Whiteside’s attempt to untangle himself from Luka’s grasp, Doncic smacks the floor.

That’s when the pushing and shoving begins, even as Whiteside is trying to help Doncic off the court. The tussle wound up getting the Jazz defender ejected, but fans aren’t about to let Doncic get away with yet another egregious flop.

Fans Thrash Luka Doncic For Another Flop

Doncic, being from overseas, brings that soccer-style, flare for the dramatic approach to his game. While he’s budding into one of the league’s young stars, his antics have grown old for most viewers outside of Dallas.

Here’s the reaction to his latest flop on social media.

The fans have caught on to Doncic’s style of play. Hopefully the NBA officiating crews will, too, so we can avoid these unnecessary outbursts.
