Clippers’ Marcus Morris speaks out on scuffle with Joel Embiid
This is nothing new between Morris and Embiid. They’ve had a few scuffles over the past seasons when Morris was on the Boston Celtics.
After the Clippers lost to the Sixers, Morris spoke to reporters about the mini scuffle with Embiid:
Marcus Morris on Joel Embiid: "I mean, we're both physical guys. It was cool, man. Just like wrapping arms and stuff like that. I ain't gonna say nothing cause they like to fine me, so I'm gonna keep my mouth shut. But, you know, it is what it is."

Tuesday was Morris’ second game with the Clippers. He put up 10 points in his debut against the Cleveland Cavaliers and finished with 13 points on Tuesday versus Philly.
With the loss, the Clippers dropped to 37-17 on the season. They take on the Boston Celtics on Thursday before heading to the All-Star break.
The Clippers didn’t trade for Morris so he can get into fights, but his physical presence is welcomed and only bodes well for the team once the playoffs start.
