Marcus Morris logged 14 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3PT, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, and two steals in Wednesday's Game 2 loss to the Mavericks.
Morris has been about as consistent as they come since entering the bubble, scoring 16, 16, 15, 15, 7, 19, and 14 over his last seven games. You know exactly what you're getting with Morris and he doesn't have a very high ceiling which makes him a lousy DFS target.
Marcus Morris collected 19 points (8-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt), six rebounds, four steals, and one assist across 32 minutes of play in the Clippers 118-110 playoff win over the Mavericks on Monday.
Morris stepped up big in this one, hitting some clutch shots and coming up with some key defensive stops when the Clips needed it most. One of his biggest contributions, however, didn't show up in the box score. He got into a tussle with Luka Doncic in the third quarter and was shoved by Kristaps Porzingis, who came to Doncic's defense. Porzingis was subsequently ejected and the momentum shifted towards LA. These are the types of games the Clippers envisioned Morris having when they traded for him back in February. They'll need him again on Wednesday for game two.
Marcus Morris put up 15 points (6-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with eight rebounds, one assist, and one steal across 32 minutes as the Clippers took care of the Blazers 122-117 on Saturday.
Morris played his role in what was an impressive team victory for the Clippers. Kawhi Leonard, Montrezl Harrell, Joakim Noah, and Patrick Beverley were all out, which explains how Morris was able to put up 13 shots. Morris is looking more comfortable by the game and he's now scored 16, 16, and 15 points over his last three contests, respectively. The Clips take on the Nets on Sunday in their first back-to-back since the restart.
Marcus Morris finished with 16 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go along with five rebounds, two steals, and one assist over 36 minutes in the Clippers 126-111 win over the Mavericks.
Don't look now but that's back-to-back 16 point games for Morris. He's strung together a couple solid performances but is still hard to trust for fantasy purposes. His routine inconsistency just don't make him a bankable DFS asset.
Marcys Morris managed 16 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while chipping in four rebounds, two assists, and two blocks across 35 minutes as the Clippers lost to the Suns 117-115 on Tuesday.
Coming off a goose egg in his previous game, Morris played with energy and intensity in this one. The 16-point effort was the second-most he's scored with the Clippers since they traded for him back in early February. He doesn't provide much value for fantasy purposes going forward, though, as the Clips have secured either the two or three seed in the West.
