Miles Plumlee trips Toure Murry, acts like nothing happened (Video)


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.

    Murry walked right onto Plumlee’s foot to get a foul… Plumlee did have his foot out like everyone does when their at the top, but Murry tried to take advantage of that. This could have been avoided if Murry wanted to avoid it, but instead he walked right on top of Plumlee’s foot and dragged his other foot into Plumlee’s foot to hurt Plumlee and/or to make it look like a trip to earn a foul, etc.
