Thankfully, nothing transpired and there wasn’t another incident similar to what we saw between the Rockets and Clippers.
Mejri has earned the reputation around the NBA as being an instigator since joining the Mavericks in 2015. He has gotten into a skirmish with Russell Westbrook. Mejri also called out Kevin Durant on one occasion. The way Mejri goes about his business on the court, it would have to be considered a surprise if this was the last incident involving him this season.
