Wizards’ Markieff Morris puts Marreese Speights in poster with dunk (VIDEO)

The Washington Wizards have won 5-of-6 after upsetting the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday, 117-110. They did it mostly because they just shot the rock better — Washington was a strong 18-of-49 from the midrange.

Of course, you shoot a high percentage when dunking.

Which is what Markieff Morris did with authority early in the fourth quarter — he got the ball in the post with Austin Rivers on him (a total mismatch), Morris spun off him and went to the rim hard. Marreese Speights tried to rotate over but things went poorly for him.

Against the Pacers last night, James Ennis missed all three of his 3-point attempts… that counted. And he makes this one after fouling out?

Mike Conley more than picked up the slack to lead the Grizzlies to victory.

The Pelicans are effectively out of the playoff race, but Dante Cunningham and Anthony Davis are still competing — even if it looks a little silly.

That tone and a big game from DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 16 rebounds, six assists) led to a 121-118 win over the Mavericks.

Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.

Too good.

With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.

Hawks’ Tim Hardaway Jr. kneed in the groin while defending 76ers (video)

Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.

After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
