Moritz Wagner celebrated the bucket by yelling almost in Doncic’s face.
That led to some pushing and then some vintage trash talk from Doncic.

Doncic yelled, “Who the f*** are you?” then pretended to wipe away tears.
After review, officials went the double technical route.
We need more emotion, more celebration in the NBA — this is supposed to be fun, a celebration and entertainment. That said, a note to Wagner: Suggs bucket cut your team’s deficit to 21 points. You were getting your a** kicked. There are times not to celebrate every basket.
Wagner did finish the night with 16 points on 5-of-6 shooting. Doncic finished with 23 points and nine rebounds, continuing his run of strong play.
