“For sure it was misperceived,” Morris said of the Dec. 23 towel incident that earned him a two-game suspension. “We go back and forth all the time. You go back and forth with players. Everything is high at the point we’re trying to figure it out. Nobody saw it, but I can see or look on TV and he says, ‘He threw a towel in a coach’s face.’ Like, where did he get that? Where did that come from? Guys just want to make you seem to be this type of person and make me seem to have a problem with Jeff: ‘Now that Jeff’s gone, I scored.’ That doesn’t have anything to do with it. I would say it just had something to do with coach (Watson) coming in and telling guys what it’s going to be and how it’s going to be.”
Markieff Morris, shooting only 40% this season and generally playing like his shoes were injected with concrete, came out last night looking like he’d been shot out of a cannon. Morris had 14 points and 5 rebounds in the first quarter alone, ending with 30 points (season high), 11 rebounds and 6 assists for the game. “He is the main focus of our offense moving forward, we know that,” Watson said of Morris, who’d spent more time on the bench than on the floor all year. “That’s part of talking about your role with this team, he went out there every play and that was his role, to lead us. He accepted that.”
