Los Angeles Clippers' Marcus Morris Ejected Against Brooklyn Nets

Los Angeles Clippers forward Marcus Morris Sr's frustrations got the better of him on Monday night. Late in the first half of his team's game with the Brooklyn Nets, Morris was ejected after arguing with an official about a foul call.

Morris played 17 minutes, scoring two points on one of three shooting and notching three personal fouls. Despite his absence, the Clippers held on for a 124-116 win. The Nets were without Kevin Durant and Ben Simmons, and tonight was their first game since officially trading Kyrie Irving.

Entering tonight's matchup, Morris had started 48 games for the Clippers, averaging 13.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game. He ranks fourth on the team in scoring, but his .554 true shooting percentage speaks to a lack of efficiency compared to the Clippers' top stars.

With tonight's win, the Clippers are now 31-26 and fourth in the Western Conference, even with top scorers Kawhi Leonard and Paul George each missing at least 17 games. If the duo can get healthy, the Clippers can contend in a crowded Western Conference playoff picture.

The Clippers are back in action against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night.
