Luka Doncic is among the most humorous guys in the league. He demonstrated exactly why with a humorous back-and-forth with Ashley Moyer-Gleich.
The Mavericks held off the Clippers with a 4th-quarter mauling on Wednesday night, emerging 105-89 victors. Luka was in his element all night long, tallying 42 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 assists on 16-of-28 shooting.
This victory gives the Mavs a 2-1 win in the season series against the Clippers. Dallas is now 8th in the Conference, and the team has been trending up over the past 7-8 weeks.
Doncic gave us some comic relief while dominating the Clippers yet another time (Luka seems to always have their number).
Luka Doncic appears to flirt with referee Ashley Moyer-Gleich as Paul George shoots free throws
Paul George drew a shooting foul from Willey Cauley-Stein early in the second quarter of this game. As PG-13 headed to the free throw line, Luka went to talk to the Ashley Moyer-Gleich, the sideline referee at the time.
There appeared to be some humorous back-and-forth between the two with Tyronn Lue in close attendance. Moyer-Gleich appeared to be saying ‘What foul?’ twice, before a reply from Luka sent her glancing sideways.
NBA Twitter went all out in imagining what Luka Doncic could possibly have said to cause this reaction. Someone suggested ‘Fouling in love with you’ as a possibility, generating hysterics across the Web.

Ashley Moyer-Gleich is one of 5 female referees on the NBA’s officiating panel this year. The addition of more and more women in this field will be encouraging for many girls aspiring to associate with the NBA in some capacity.
Luka Doncic, meanwhile can’t seem to possibly put a foot wrong in his public life. He’s got the unofficial ‘Most-Liked Player in the NBA’ title on lock, though the tide may turn if he doesn’t make a deep playoff run in the near future.
