Poor Nikola Mirotic. He has no business checking Kemba Walker. Probably he learned his lesson after sucker-ass Kirk Hinrich left him hanging because he could not get over a Marvin Williams screen and Kemba crossed him out of his socks, but this is immaterial, because Nikola Mirotic is now a cluster of scattered protons blowing out along the Carolina coastline.

The reactions around the floor are the best part here. Watch Jimmy Butler do a double take before trying to close out, or Dunleavy just stay a twitchy goober without losing his ball or the man, or Thibs standing five feet away and imagining all the roofs he'd like to toss Mirotic from.
