Atlanta’s Paul Millsap and Washington’s Markieff Morris have been jawing at each other in their first-round playoff matchup, likening the physical style of play to mixed martial arts. The bad blood took a personal turn Saturday night in Atlanta, though, after the Wizards’ blowout loss in Game 3 put the Hawks back in the series.
Afterward, Morris insinuated that Millsap had help with having such a big game. “Me, as a man, you take your wins with your losses. I take my wins with my losses all the time,” said Morris, who finished with nine points on 4-of-14 shooting. “He just did more for his team. He’s a crybaby. You get all the calls when you’re a crybaby. That’s how I look at it.”
