Jusuf Nurkic threw a Pacers fan's phone

Portland player Jusuf Nurkic may have been a little testy after the Trail Blazers lost 129-98 to the Indiana Pacers. He had evidently had enough of one fan.

Jusuf Nurkic threw a Pacers fan's phone

In a video that was tweeted out by Indiana's account "Setting the Pace", Portland Trail Blazers Jusuf Nurkic is shown throwing a Pacers fan's phone.

Nurkic has been out with a foot injury since February 24 and did not play in the game against the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers gave the Trail Blazers a beating, blowing them out of the water, 129-98.

In the video, a fan is holding his phone and appears to be recording. He says something to Nurkic as he approaches him and Nurkic then snatches the phone out of his hand and tosses it casually in the air. The fan is heard saying, "Why'd you throw my phone?", but then security steps in and the video is cut off.

It's unclear what it was that set off Nurkic. He wasn't required to do a media interview since he didn't play in the game, so no comments have come out.  Some unconfirmed reports say that the fan had been provoking Nurkic during the whole game. The NBA will likely investigate the incident and fine Nurkic.
