Marcus Morris isn’t enjoying playing in Boston right now.
The Celtics forward is averaging career highs in points (14.6) and rebounds (6) in 2018-19, but he told the media “it’s not fun” after they blew a 28-point lead in a loss against the Clippers.
“It’s not really about the loss,” Morris said. “It’s about the attitudes that we’re playing with.”
The Celtics have lost their last two games and are fifth in the Eastern Conference. While Boston is still considered to be a championship contender, Morris spoke out about his problems with the franchise.
“Even though we’re winning, it’s still not fun,” Morris continued. “I watch all these other teams around the league and guys are up on the bench and jumping on the court. They’re doing all the stuff that looks like they’re enjoying their teammates.”
Star point guard Kyrie Irving went down with a knee injury against Los Angeles. Rumors have swarmed concerning his long-term commitment to the franchise.
Boston’s faithful booed the Celtics off the court at the conclusion of the contest, signaling they weren’t pleased with the team’s effort.
