Markieff Morris: We knew Caldwell-Pope would miss last shot because he “doesn’t have any heart”


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):

Well then.

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.
