Another day, another Washington Wizards story. And this time, it’s Markieff Morris chiming in.
After the Wizards’ incredible comeback from a 24-point deficit on Tuesday to stun the Los Angeles Clippers, the body language and attitudes remained mostly the same.
“It’s f—-d up what’s going on. So I wouldn’t say that it makes it nicer. We’ve just got to figure it out,” Morris told The Athletic’s Fred Katz. “The comments that’s coming from the locker room is f—-d up. It don’t happen in other sports. So it’s messed up.”
Beal was asked by reporters if the tension and environment could be uplifted in the future. For what it’s worth, it could already be on the mend.
“I’m not a future predictor. Nobody is. But you just ride the course and take it a day at a time and professionally that’s how I take it,” Beal told reporters. “So each day, we try to get better. Each day you just chip away at it.”
This week featured a scuffle between John Wall and Jeff Green during practice that also featured Beal and Austin Rivers exchanging heated words. And on the court, the product isn’t much better. Despite that big comeback win, they’re just 5-11 on the season. Up next, they battle the Eastern Conference-leading Raptors on Friday night.
