Irving wanted a chance to save the night before the Celtics eventually fell to the Magic, 105-103. "Heck, I remember those things happening to [Rajon] Rondo and Perk [Kendrick Perkins]". An Instagram video captured by a fan shows Morris clapping his hands at Brown in frustration and shoving him. They have depth at forward with Hayward and Jayson Tatum.
Added Morris: "As the season goes on, I think we'll get better".
The Celtics are now on the verge of finishing off their three-game road trip with three consecutive losses as they head to Brooklyn to take on the Nets Monday night.
"It's something where those things happen to best friends even".
It's two good kids that are competitive. We're lacking it and, because of that, we have a lot of learning to do. "We've got a lot of pieces out there. You've got to be patient and continue to work hard and things will fall in place".
It is unknown whether Morris will face discipline from the team for the shove, but players are scheduled to meet with reporters on Saturday before their game in Orlando. "I feel as though I'm one of the leaders on this team so if I have an engagement with any of my teammates, we all know that it's basketball related and it goes nothing past the court".
"If you don't humble yourself, the world has a way of humbling it for you, " said Marcus Smart.
