Marcus Morris buys cheesesteaks for Celtics teammates after beating Sixers

Marcus Morris

Philadelphia is said to have the best cheesesteaks in the world, so after the Boston Celtics defeated the Sixers in The City of Brotherly Love on Tuesday, Celtics small forward Marcus Morris decided to reward his teammates for the big win by buying them — you guessed it — cheesesteaks.

The Celtics snapped a two-game losing streak by defeating the Sixers, 112-109. Boston is now 36-21 on the season, while Philly dropped to 36-21.

Marcus Morris finished with 17 points, eight rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes of action. The veteran swingman had some choice words after the Celtics lost the Los Angeles Clippers this Saturday. Morris said it hasn’t been fun in Boston despite the team having a winning record on the season.

The club sure had fun on Tuesday, though. The win was impressive considering Boston was playing without its best player, star point guard Kyrie Irving. “Uncle Drew” wasn’t with the team, as he’s rehabbing a right knee injury which he suffered against the Clippers.

The Celtics host the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday before embarking on the All-Star break.

It’s going to be a nice plane ride home from Philadelphia to Boston for the players, who are going to be enjoying their cheesesteaks while relaxing in the air.
