Skip Bayless is known for his sometimes outrageous takes on several players being a TV analyst for so many years. In his latest tweet, Luka Doncic was his target after expressing his frustration for not getting the ball in the clutch.

Despite trailing for the most part of the game the Mavericks had the chance to win the game vs. Milwaukee, but Trey Burke and Kristaps Porzingis missed the go-ahead buckets in the last seconds.

Doncic appeared to want a timeout to be called once Dallas got the offensive rebound off Burke’s miss. Carlisle did not call one and Porzingis missed the Mavs’ final shot of the game with 10.4 seconds to go.

Despite Doncic saying he was fine with the the two shots his teammates took, Skip Bayless thought Doncic seemed frustrated.

On the other hand, Doncic did not show any frustration in the post-game presser, after another dominant night recording a stat line of 28 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds.

“It’s coach’s decision,” Doncic said. “If we would have made the shot, everything would have been good.” Dallas fell to 6-5 after the loss to the Eastern Conference leaders Milwaukee Bucks.
