A “take” foul by Markieff Morris on Nikola Jokic led to a retaliatory shove and now a social media beef involving siblings of both parties.
“Waited till bro turned his back smh. NOTED,” Marcus Morris tweeted Monday night with an emoji of a pen in hand.
That prompted Jokic’s brothers, Strahinja and Nemanja, to open a Twitter account named “@JokicBrothers” to respond to Marcus Morris, The Denver Post reported.
The newly created account tweeted: “You should leave this the way it is instead of publicly threatening our brother! Your brother made a dirty play first. If you want to make a step further be sure we will be waiting for you !! Jokic Brothers”
Jokic is now facing a probable suspension.
Spoelstra said Morris was OK after the hard foul and was moving around in the locker room.
“This whole thing could have been a whole lot uglier if Markieff was actually facing Jokic,” Spoelstra said. “The fact that he had his back turned and he made a play like that, blindsiding him, just a very dangerous play.”
