Nikola Jokic’s physical contact with Enes Kanter on a box out during a free throw attempt in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals on Friday night has sparked plenty of discussion.
Jokic was seen ramming into Kanter on a free throw attempt during the second quarter. The play drew particular attention from us because Jokic nailed Kanter in his left shoulder, which was already injured.
Kanter said after the game he thought the league needed to review the play. He has the backing of Portland head coach Terry Stotts, who said the play was “uncalled for.”
