Things got a little bit chippy in Game 3 between the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers. Newly crowned Sixth Man of the Year Jordan Clarkson was in the thick of the action as he got whistled for a flagrant foul 1 for a blatant hit on Clippers big man Ivica Zubac.
Clarkson channeled countryman and multi-division boxing champion Manny Pacquiao with this vicious smack across Zubac’s head:
Clarkson was going for the ball, but he was very late on his attempt to swat the rock away from Zubac. The Jazz stud hit Zubac smack across the face at full strength. That could have easily been called a flagrant 2 considering how the hit was above the shoulders.
