Markieff Morris called Paul Millsap a ‘crybaby’ after Game 3

The Wizards-Hawks series is so petty

Things got personal between Paul Millsap and Markieff Morris. At least that’s what the Hawks’ All-Star said during his post-game press conference when he caught wind that Morris called him a “crybaby” after Atlanta’s 116-98 Game 3 win over the Washington Wizards on Saturday.

(Please note Dennis Schroder’s reaction.)

“It definitely got personal now, yes,” Millsap smiled. “I mean, I don’t care. So what. Take this loss and go back to the hotel. And get ready for the next game.”

Millsap torched the Wizards on Saturday, pouring on a game-high 29 points on 12-of-20 shooting, as well as 14 rebounds, five assists two blocks and a steal. He shot five-of-nine from the foul line in Game 3 after attempting 26 combined free throws in Games 1 and 2.

It’s those foul calls, at least in the first two games, that likely prompted Morris’ post-game remarks.

The Hawks built a 25-point first-quarter lead and held on all game long in their win over the Wizards. Maybe Washington should worry about bigger things than name-calling.
