Video: Marcus Morris Taunts Larry Nance Jr., Who Retaliates in Full Force

Larry Nance Jr. and Marcus Morris Scuffle

With Cleveland Cavaliers on the receiving end of a 27-7 run by the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals, a play involving Larry Nance Jr. and the Celtics’ Marcus Morris nearly sparked an on-court brawl with just under 11 minutes left in the second quarter.

Nance was in the midst of trying to score when Morris pushed him to the ground. Adding to the fuel, Morris then taunted Nance, who retaliated with a push that caused the game to be stopped. Both were assessed technical fouls, with Boston’s Terry Rozier also being given one.

Morris has had a longstanding reputation of volatile behavior, with the Cavaliers hoping that serves as a spark for what’s been a slow start to the contest.
