Los Angeles Lakers forward Julius Randle said Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic attempted to injure him near the end of L.A.’s 112-103 win Tuesday.
According to ESPN.com’s Ohm Youngmisuk, Randle explained his rationale behind shoving Jokic down with 21 seconds remaining: “I just didn’t like [how] he was coming down flailing, flapping his arm and stuff. And that’s fine and that is his game, but when you hook my arm and try to pull my shoulder out of place, I don’t like that.”
Randle and Jokic were assessed technical fouls for getting in each other’s faces after the incident.
