Luka Doncic played it smart against Chris Paul’s flopping
Luka Doncic’s response to Chris Paul’s flopping speaks much about the Mavericks guard’s honest and competitive character.
The Phoenix Suns fell to the Dallas Mavericks in Game 4 on Sunday, and Chris Paul had an unfortunate night finishing with just five points.
Paul had several fouls that frustrated both him and every Suns’ fan, especially now that the series is tied 2-2, and got him fouled out with just nine minutes left in the fourth quarter.
Mavericks’ Luka Doncic played a big role in Paul’s night to forget.

Doncic’s reply to Paul is the smart play
Following the game, Paul asked Doncic if he had hit him strong enough as he made it seem. And the 23-year-old responded with absolute honesty:
“No. But it was a smart play.”
And it absolutely was.
