Doncic on blow to Sexton’s groin, ejection: ‘It obviously wasn’t on purpose’
Luka Doncic earned an ejection Sunday after a shot to the groin of Collin Sexton that officials saw as intentional.
Doncic left the court with a meme-worthy face of surprise, and that’s because he said the blow was not intentional. Via Tim MacMahon of ESPN:
Sexton had Doncic’s back.
Even if it was an accident, referees can’t judge intent, only results. And the result was clear: Doncic punched Sexton in the groin, and that will earn a Flagrant 2.
The ejection leaves Doncic still one technical foul short of an automatic one-game suspension.
Even without their young star, Dallas held on for a comfortable 124-97 win over Cleveland.
