The NBA has announced that Washington Wizards forward Markieff Morris has been fined $25,000 for attempting to escalate an altercation and pushing a game official during Game 3 of Washington's first-round series with the Toronto Raptors on Friday.
After Friday's Game 3 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, Morris suggested that referees have been unfair to him recently, ever since he patted a ref on the backside following an ejection in late March. I'm expecting it. They knew what they wanted before the game started. "It's been the same s** a href="http://www.nba.com/article/2018/04/21/boston-celitcs-marcus-morris-fined" *fined Morris $15,000 for sharing his opinion on the matter".
Markieff Morris has been fined US$25,000 by the National Basketball Association on Saturday for attempting to escalate an altercation and pushing an official during a game against Toronto on Friday night.
The punishments aren't likely to curb either siblings behavior much.
Following the loss, Morris was asked about the technical foul he received after some brief words with Bucks forward/center Thon Maker. "So that's on [the referees]".
"I promise I won't get no techs, unless we're just getting blatantly cheated", the Celtics forward said. "I felt like when we played them in Toronto, they did everything too freely".
Both Marcus' Celtics and Markieff's Wizards will be in action Sunday.
