Nikola Jokic Gets Tech For Shoving Suns Owner Mat Ishbia

Nikola Jokic faces a possible suspension after making contact courtside with the owner of the Phoenix Suns on Sunday.


Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic was assessed a technical foul on Sunday night for making content with Phoenix Suns owner Mat Ishbia. The bizarre incident occurred as Josh Okogie crashed into the courtside seats where Ishbia was sitting. Ishbia ended up with the basketball in his hands. When Jokic tried to rush over and grab it, the ball went flying into the stands and he shoved Ishbia while trying to get it. Ishbia told The Associated Press that he was “fine” at halftime.

Nuggets coach Michael Malone said it was “crazy” that refs gave Jokic a technical foul in that situation. “Going to get the ball, and some fan is holding onto the ball who wants be a part of the game. Just give the ball up, man,” Malone said. As for whether he cares that the fan was Ishbia, Malone remarked, “I don’t give a shit.” It’s unclear whether the league will suspend Jokic for the incident.
