Luka Doncic was all smiles during his postgame presser on Thursday night after the Dallas Mavericks beat the Oklahoma City Thunder to even the Western Conference semifinals series at one game a piece. 

That was until he was interrupted by a lewd sound that appeared to be coming from inside the room.

The origin of the audio was not clear. WFAA reported that the sound appeared to be coming from someone’s laptop in the media room. 

The conversation eventually refocused on the Mavericks Game 2 victory. Doncic battled through a sprained right knee and a bloodied left knee after being held to 19 points in Game 1.
