Mile Plumlee whiffed pretty badly on an alley-oop from Goran Dragic earlier in the Suns Monday night game against the New York Knicks. He didn’t help his cause later in the game when he was busted tripping Knicks player Toure Murry and then acting like nothing happened.
This is pretty standard though, as you’d be a pretty stupid NBA player to trip a guy and then run it in, unless you were looking for a fight.
It didn’t appear that Plumlee was all that interested in fighting Murry, but it did seem like he no longer wanted him to be on his feet. While coy and a little funny, it hardly makes up for Plumlee’s gaffe on the alley-oop later.
Take out your frustration on someone your own size.
