Charles Barkley praised Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis for not backing down to the challenge of facing the Los Angeles Clippers.

Barkley said he respects the two superstars of the Dallas Mavericks for the way they have stood up against the Clippers’ bullying.

“Porzingis and Doncic are not backing down. I love this, man. You know they’re trying to bully them, and they’re standing up to the bully. Dallas got a bright future, man,” Barkley said during their NBA on TNT segment, per Callie Caplan of the Dallas Morning News.

Doncic, Porzingis trail the series 2-1. Game 4 is on Sunday.
