Following the Detroit Pistons’ 102-95 win Friday night against the visiting Milwaukee Bucks, forward Marcus Morris was asked about a key defensive play made a couple of nights earlier against the Phoenix Suns.
Morris took the opportunity to call former teammate Brandon Knight “soft” and prone to panicking.
Stay classy, Marcus.
Per MLive (via the AZ Republic):
Late Friday, after a 102-95 win over the Milwaukee Bucks sent the Detroit PIstons’ win streak to three games, Morris was asked about a key play two nights earlier when he stole a pass by ex-teammate Brandon Knight late in regulation. The play led to Andre Drummond’s game-tying free throws, then overtime, then victory.
Whether Morris anticipated the play because of his time as Knight’s teammate, he didn’t say.
“I don’t know. What I do know is that he’s soft,” Morris said of Knight. “Soft. He panicked. So when you’re like that, that’s the type of stuff that happens.”
