[VIDEO] Sixers’ Joel Embiid, Clippers’ Marcus Morris get into it after grueling low post battle

Playing in just his second game as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers, Marcus Morris is letting everyone know that he won’t back down from anybody. The 6-foot-8 forward got into it with Philadelphia 76ers superstar Joel Embiid late in the team’s road game at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday.

Things got testy at the 2:50 mark of the fourth quarter when Morris tried to deny the seven-foot Cameroonian good position down low. A foul was eventually called, but the pair remained entangled after the whistle blew.

Morris did not seem to appreciate the excessive contact as he pushed away Embiid’s arm. Jojo pushed back, prompting the angered Marcus to give him a two-handed shove directly on his chest.

Both players were separated by their teams before the situation got out of hand.

Philly went on to claim its third consecutive win with a hard-fought 110-103 victory over the tough Clippers side. Joel Embiid led the way for the victors with 26 points, nine boards and three assists in 28 minutes. Marcus Morris, on the other hand, pitched in 13 points and five rebounds in a losing effort for LA.
