Wizards’ Markieff Morris, Raptors’ OG Anunoby get into shoving match 3 minutes into Game 3

OG Anunoby, Markieff Morris

The Washington Wizards and Toronto Raptors tipped off Game 3 of their first round playoff series on Friday night. With Toronto up 2-0, this third game is crucial for the Wizards if they want a chance to win these series.

Within the first three minutes, the two sides already got into it. Raptors rookie OG Anunoby fouled Wizards’ veteran Markieff Morris, who was coming off of a screen. Morris, who fell to the ground, got back up and threw a little elbow at the rookie. Anunoby responded with a little shove, and that escalated into more shoving between all five players on the court for both teams.

After the dust settled and the officials reviewed the play, double-technical fouls were called on Morris and Anunoby and play resumed. Midway through the 2nd quarter, the Wizards lead the Raptors 44-39.
