Grizzlies Ja Morant Reacts to Flagrant Foul from Clippers Marcus Morris Sr.



Ja Morant

Los Angeles Clippers veteran forward Marcus Morris was ejected during the third quarter of the Clippers’ Tuesday night tilt against the Memphis Grizzles after committing a flagrant foul 2 on Grizzlies All-Star guard Ja Morant.

Morant was driving to the hoop quick when Morris took him down with the hard foul, one that saw Morris hit Morant in the face with an open hand as Morris attempted to defend the dunk by Morant.

The initial foul was upgraded to a flagrant 2 and Morris was ejected following a review by the officials.

“Regarding the play, I’m not worried about it,” Morant said following the game, according to ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk. “I’m actually cool with Morris brother. You see I got up. I played on concrete all my life.”

“I was worried about what he was about to do [in reaction to the foul]” Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. said. “I was worried about what was about to go down. But nothing went down. I wasn’t worried about his fall either. He’s a sturdy guy.”

The foul didn’t do much to hinder Morant, who finished with 30 points, seven rebounds and five assists as the Grizzlies cruised to a 135-109 victory.
