In the second quarter of the Suns eventual win over the Pistons in Detroit Wednesday night, Markieff Morris and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope got into it a little bit, jawing at each other. It happens.
Late in the game the Suns’ Eric Bledsoe made a driving layup that put the Suns on top. Still, the Pistons had a couple of chances to tie. First Morris blocked a Brandon Jennings driving layup, but the Pistons got another chance when Caldwell-Pope let go a three with :02 on the clock. If it goes in the Pistons win.
Morris wasn’t worried (via Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News):
As Goodwill notes, it’s easy to say that after the fact. This is a league of faux fights and “tough guys” who make sure someone is there to hold them back so they don’t actually get in a fight. So take it all with a little bit of salt.
Circle the date on your calendar, the rematch is Dec. 12 in Phoenix.
