Markieff Morris scored 17 points with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.
He bookended this series with a terrific Game 1, terrible games leading up to tonight, and just bringing it on both ends in this series-clinching win. Moving forward, the NBA is going to have to look at an incident with Morris leaving the bench. Bradley Beal landed awkwardly and did turn around to confront Kent Bazemore, so Morris left the bench just after the contact. Morris did back away when things were escalating, so he should be OK. If Morris plays like this against the Celtics, the Wizards could be a problem. Apr 28 - 10:41 PM
