Clippers’ Marcus Morris takes savage jab at Utah after beating Jazz again
The Los Angeles Clippers tied up their second-round series against the Utah Jazz at 2-2 with another commanding victory in Game 4 on Monday night. Marcus Morris had another big night with his twin brother Markieff in the house (he was there for Game 7 against the Dallas Mavericks), going for 24 points and five 3-pointers in the 118-104 win.
Marcus was asked if Markieff would be bringing some of that good luck with him to Utah. The Clippers big man’s response was savage:
“No, won’t be coming to Utah. I don’t know if anybody wants to go to Utah,” Morris said, via PBT’s Kurt Helin.
“He’s going to stick it out here in L.A. and we’ll see him when we come back.”
Marcus Morris was really channeling his inner Vernon Maxwell there by taking this dig at Utah. Jazz fans won’t like this and will almost certainly let him hear hit when the teams get back together for a pivotal Game 5 on Wednesday night. They’ll hope to throw him off his game after the big Game 4 performance.
Just like the first round against the Mavs, the Clippers have turned the tables on the Jazz after losing the first two games. LA dominated the two tilts at Staples Center and has to be feeling good going back to Utah. Winning in that hostile environment won’t be easy, but the Clippers won three key road games in Dallas in the first round. They’ll be ready for whatever Jazz fans throw at them in Game 5 and will try to take full control of the series.
