Khris Middleton upset with Nikola Mirotic for not helping him up
Khris Middleton was not happy with teammate Nikola Mirotic for not helping him up after a play in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals between his Milwaukee Bucks and the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday.
Middleton tried to take a charge in the lane on a drive by Pascal Siakam and got knocked down. Giannis Antetokounmpo offered a hand to help up Middleton. Mirotic was standing around right next to him and didn’t extend a helping hand. That left Middleton ticked off, and he screamed at his teammate for not paying attention and offering to help him up.
Siakam made the shot to put the Raptors up 72-60 with 8:43 to go in the third quarter. He also made the free throw to complete the 3-point play.
Middleton was having a big game through three quarters and was 8-for-10, including four three-pointers and three free throws. Mirotic was 4-for-9.
