Deep in the heart of the 2023 NBA Playoffs, a flop did occur during Game 4 between the Denver Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns. However, it did not come from a player on the court.
In the video below, Phoenix Suns owner and United Wholesale Mortgage CEO Mat Ishbia was knocked off or ‘flopped’ as his feet as Nuggets center Nikola Jokic was trying to stop a skirmish on the sidelines.
You can see in the clip Ishbia just standing off to the side, but gets the forearm from Jokic before falling over.
Ishbia would be okay as he would get up on his own, but we bet he probably doesn’t miss those plays when he played college ball at Michigan State.
Hopefully the flop/knockdown isn’t bad luck for the Suns as Phoenix is still hanging on to their championship hopes as they’re down to 2-1 in the series against the Nuggets.
