Watch: Nikola Jokic takes cheap shot at Enes Kanter’s injured shoulder

Nikola Jokic

Nikola Jokic took a cheap shot at Enes Kanter during Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals between the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers on Friday.

Moe Harkless was at the free throw line shooting two for Portland late in the second quarter. Jokic was lined up close to the basket and decided to ram into Kanter on the second free throw, which Harkless also made.

Jokic caught Kanter directly in the left shoulder, which is a literal sore spot for the Blazers big man. He suffered a separated shoulder against the Thunder that has bothered him through the first two games of the series.

Kanter complained to the officials about the play but did not receive a call. It was a clear foul by Jokic, who got away with one.
