NBA superstar Luka Doncic startled by disturbing noise during press conference

Luka Doncic froze when his press conference was interrupted by what sounded like sex sounds after Game 2 of the Mavericks-Thunder second-round playoff series.

The Mavericks’ All-NBA guard stopped talking in the middle of an explanation about his team’s energy and went wide-eyed at the unexpected moment.

It sounded like a high-pitched female voice moaning for a few seconds and then it stopped.

Doncic, 25, then hung his head and covered his face with his hand as he laughed.

“Okay, we’ll move on,” one reporter said as others at the news conference laughed.

“I hope this isn’t live,” Doncic said.

Things continued from there with the five-time All-Star explaining what kept him going in the Mavericks’ 119-110 win against Oklahoma City on Friday AEST.

“It was one of the toughest games I’ve had to play,” Doncic said after Dallas tied the series at 1-1.

Doncic, who was nursing a sprained right knee, then ended up face-first on the field in the opening minutes of the match.

He continued to check his teeth throughout the game, but still managed to finish with 29 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists after a shooting slump in Game 1.

He scored or assisted on 24 of Dallas’ 36 points in the first quarter.

Mavericks forward PJ Washington scored 19 of his 29 points in the first half and recorded 11 rebounds and four assists.

Doncic and Washington became the first duo in NBA history with 25 points, including five three-pointers, and 10 rebounds in a playoff game, according to ESPN statistics.

Mavericks forward Tim Hardaway Jr. finished with 17 points in the Game 2 victory.

It was OKC’s first loss in the 2024 NBA playoffs.

The Mavericks host the Thunder for Game 3 in Dallas on Sunday AEST.
