NBA Rookie's Mom Claps Back At Angry Fan During Game

An NBA rookie's mom had no problem clapping back at an angry fan during her son's game on Wednesday night.

Former European star Luka Doncic made his NBA debut on Wednesday night, with the Dallas Mavericks taking on the Phoenix Suns and No. 1 overall pick DeAndre Ayton.

Doncic had a solid first game, but the Mavs fell to the Suns, 121-100.

There was reportedly an incident between a Suns fan and Doncic's mom during the game:

"Drunk Suns fan giving it to Dončić. Luka’s mom turns around and tells him to shut up after he realizes it’s his mom and starts talking about great he is. She’s right in front of me," a fan tweeted.

The fan, thankfully, attempted to apologize later:

Doncic finished the night with 10 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists.

The Mavericks are set to host Minnesota on Saturday.
