Wizards’ Scott Brooks, Markieff Morris Comment on Ejection

Published

on

Washington Wizards head coach isn’t too pleased about forward Markieff Morris’ ejection from Monday’s loss to the New York Knicks with 3:45 left in the first half after he collected his second technical foul for trash talking Knicks rookie Mitchell Robinson.

It isn’t a good start for Brooks’ team, who he was trying to work with on talking less, and working harder.

Morris was still heated with Robinson following the game, sharing some choice words in the locker room.

“He’s a stupid-ass rookie,” Morris said following the game, according to Candace Buckner of The Washington Post. “Talking too much. Obviously I didn’t like what he said, and the refs overplayed it and threw me out.”

“I don’t even know him. I ain’t never really seen him before,” Morris added, his mellow voice rising. “He just checked into the game. I never even guarded him. I didn’t know there was a Mitchell on their team.”

Brooks wasn’t rushing to the defense of his player, instead expressing frustration.

“First exhibition, we let our emotions get a little out of control” Brooks said.

“It’s not good. It’s not a good look. You have five players out there competing, both teams, and you have three referees competing themselves. We have to make sure that we can control our emotions.

“It’s about playing a style of play… and keeping our composure,” he continued. “It doesn’t do any good to give up points. Games are so close. An overtime game we’re giving up free throws and we’re losing players in the game.”
