Portland Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts believes Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic’s elbowing of Enes Kanter’s injured shoulder in Game 3 on Friday night was “uncalled for,” according to ESPN.com’s Royce Young.
“First overtime, I think I separated my shoulder more,” Kanter said after logging 56 minutes, including 37 in regulation, in the 140-137 quadruple-overtime victory, according to ESPN.com’s Kevin Pelton.
“I had to tuck my arm into my jersey because I couldn’t carry my arm. I’m glad we got a win, man. Whatever it takes. You’ve got to sacrifice everything. I’m proud of my teammates.”
