The Washington Wizards and the Boston Celtics don’t like each other and that dates back to the regular season. However, after a Game 1 that included a Markieff Morris injury and Isaiah Thomas operating without a tooth, things greatly heated up in Game 2 as the two teams combined to produce a laundry list of injuries and mishaps due to highly physical play.

To get things started, Morris and Horford became tangled up again and, this time, it was Morris delivering the business end within the first few minutes of action.

Morris thought his Game 1 injury at the hands of Horford might have happened on purpose. He event went as far as to directly ask Horford about this before the game. While Horford denied any intent, it doesn’t seem like Morris bought that.

Later in the first half, Wizards All-Star point guard John Wall had a scary issue that made the NBA world collectively gasp about a wrist injury. He ended up shaking it off, but at the time, it looked bad.
