Video: Kristaps Porzingis pushes Moe Harkless during confrontation
Kristaps Porzingis shoved Moe Harkless during a confrontation between the men on Sunday night.
Porzingis’ Dallas Mavericks had the ball in the third quarter against Harkless’ Sacramento Kings. Porzingis set a screen and then rolled down low to the post, where he was guarded by Harkless. Porzingis was calling for the ball because of the height mismatch, but Harkless nudged him before the ball arrived, causing the ball to go out of bounds.
Harkless appeared to say something to Porzingis. Porzingis then got in his opponent’s face and shoved Harkless.
