Meyers Leonard gets weakest flagrant foul of playoffs for beef with Jokic

Meyers Leonard got called for the weakest flagrant foul of the postseason for his brief beef with Nikola Jokic in the fourth quarter of a Game 5 blowout on Tuesday night.

Leonard was defending Jokic with Portland down by 20 to Denver. Jokic drove to the basket and was fouled by Leonard and then said something to the Trail Blazers big man.

Then Zach Collins stepped in to tell Jokic to back off.

The referees came in to separate everyone and then reviewed the play. They decided to give Leonard a flagrant 1 foul for unnecessary contact. That really seemed like a flagrant foul call for unnecessary trash talking.

Leonard getting under the skin of Jokic is something Portland fans will happily take all day.

Denver won the game 124-98 and leads the Western Conference semifinals series 3-2.
