The Celtics got a decisive win against the Wizards in Game 1 of their second round series on Sunday, despite the fact that Washington sprinted out to a 16-0 lead in the first quarter. Things got physical at times, too, as Isaiah Thomas had a tooth knocked out in the first half, yet kept playing and finished with a game-high 33 points.
Markieff Morris, however, wasn’t so lucky. About midway through the second quarter, Morris elevated for a step-back jumper, then came down awkwardly on Al Horford’s foot, who had moved in to contest the shot. The replays showed that Morris rolled his ankle badly, and after the game, the Wizards forward alluded to the idea that Horford might have intentionally tried to “Jalen Rose” him.
