Morris finished with 21 points (7-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Thursday's win over the Kings. Morris topped 20 points for the first time since January 9th. The veteran forward's held a steady role for the Celtics throughout the season and while he's tailed off recently, he's still averaging 14.2 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.0 threes -- all career highs -- throughout the season.
Morris compiled 16 points (7-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and four assists across 27 minutes in the Celtics' 120-107 win over the Lakers on Saturday. Morris enjoyed a solid final line overall despite struggling from three-point range, and he's now posted three straight double-digit scoring efforts after going scoreless over 18 minutes versus the Rockets last Sunday. Morris was experiencing some shooting woes as February wound down, posting a sub-40 percent success rate from the floor in three of the final four games of the month. However, he seems to have mostly gotten back on track from in front of the arc, draining 57.1 percent of his two-point attempts across five March games.
Morris supplied 19 points (7-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and four assists across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 111-109 road win over the Kings. With Kyrie Irving out (thigh), Morris, Jayson Tatum, Al Horford and Terry Rozier had to pick up the scoring slack. Morris' scoring surge was nice to see after averaging only 8.8 points from 37 percent shooting over his prior four games. The return of Aron Baynes allows Morris to focus more on his offensive game as Baynes bangs opposing bigs on the defensive end. Boston hopes to extend their two game road trip winning streak when the C's face the Lakers in prime time on Saturday night.
Morris finished with 17 points (7-17 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 0-2 FT), nine rebounds and a block across 27 minutes in the Celtics' win over the Wizards on Friday. Morris had a typical outing on Friday, pairing his scoring and rebounding totals with solid defense. He was one rebound shy of a double-double. He's been a reliable, if not unspectacular, fantasy option this season, averaging career highs in points (14.4) and rebounds (6.1).
Morris managed 17 points (6-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, and one assist in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 118-95 loss to the Raptors. Morris finished with a team high in scoring while seeing more minutes than any Celtic besides Kyrie Irving. The score became lopsided early and thus coach Brad Stevens opted to rest his starters down the stretch, but Morris was the lone member of the first unit whose stat line didn't really suffer. Another tough matchup looms with the Trail Blazers on tap for Wednesday.
