Markieff Morris ejected after flagrant-2 foul on Isaiah Canaan

The Wizards were getting frustrated. They had led Thursday night’s game by 24, but the Sixers had made a comeback and were making it a game.

Markieff Morris took it a step too far. The Sixers’ Isaiah Canaan was on a breakaway and Morris raced up with the chance to challenge the shot, but instead, he ended up hitting Canaan in the head.

Intentional or not, it was a blow to the head and that’s an automatic ejection. Morris may see a fine for that.

The Wizards held on to win, 99-94, another needed victory in their efforts to make the playoffs in the East.
