Bad night Dončić, Gogi scored when it was most needed
Chris Boucher added 21 points to the victory, OG Anunoby and 13 and 11 rebounds, along with Stanley Johnson However, he did most of the defensive work stopping Dončič.
It was Johnson who managed to fall under the skin of the Slovenian star, who was visibly angry and nervous on the pitch, and also took care of a very unusual and embarrassing move for him.
When Johnson grabbed him tight again and started covering him already in the middle of Dallas, Luke deliberately hit him in the face with his elbow. It all turned into a small altercation, as the rest of the Toronto players immediately defended their teammate, but the passions quickly subsided and Johnson did not want to inflate the situation too much even after the game.
“I think he was quite disappointed. “When you’re tearing up a league like this, and then someone stops you like us, it ‘s definitely frustrating,” Johnson said of Doncic after the game.
