Markieff Morris on mindset during 26-0 run: ‘Blow them the f**k out’
Thanks to an amazing 26-0 run in the third quarter, the Washington Wizards defeated the Boston Celtics, 121-102, in Game 4 on Sunday. The second-round series between the Celtics and Wizards is now tied up 2-2.
During that 26-0 run, the Wizards kept their foot on the gas and just scored on the Celtics quickly and in a variety of ways. Apparently, the Wizards played that way because their mindset was to not show any mercy and just finish off the Celtics. Or as Wizards forward Markieff Morris put it, the Wizards just wanted to blow the Celtics out.
Morris’ actual quote is a bit more colorful though.
From CSN Mid-Atlantic:
“Blow them the f— out. Just keep pressing them. Go up by 50 if we can. That’s the mindset I feel like all of us had,” he said.
Leave it to Morris to perfectly describe the Wizards’ mentality. A mentality that the team will have to duplicate on Wednesday if they want to win Game 5 in Boston.
