DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Dallas Mavericks have asked the NBA to "look closely" at not one but two separate plays involving LA Clippers forward Marcus Morris and Luka Doncic, according to Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News.

One of the plays already went viral on social media after the game. That play shows Morris stepping on the back on Doncic's injured left ankle.

Morris went to social media to defend himself, saying, "to think I would try to injure somebody is crazy to me."

The Mavericks have now submitted a second piece of evidence of Morris' dirty play. In this one, Morris is seen undercutting Doncic on a three-point shot.

The NBA created the "Zaza" rule after former Golden State Warriors big man Zaza Pachulia slide under then San Antonio Spur Kawhi Leonard on a jump shot, causing his ankle to be re-injured in the 2017 Western Conference Finals.

Pachulia was not suspended for the play.
