Celtics' Marcus Morris: Leads C's in minutes, despite not starting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris generated 13 points (5-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt), six rebounds and one steal across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 96-83 ECF Game 5 win over the Cavaliers.

Morris came of the bench in Game 5, but still led the Celtics in minutes played. Coach Brad Stevens decided to replace Morris in the starting lineup with Aron Baynes to counter Tristan Thompson's rugged rebounding. No matter, as Morris still delivered clutch three point shooting and contributed to a team defensive effort that appeared to exhaust LeBron James. Morris and his Celtics teammates will now try to wrap up the series Friday night in Cleveland.

Celtics' Marcus Morris: Will come off the bench for Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris will come off the bench for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Cavaliers as Aron Baynes will start in his place, Scott Souza of The Providence Journal reports.

After the Celtics have struggled the past two games, Brad Stevens has opted to shake up the starting lineup and insert Aron Baynes and Marcus Morris. Morris struggled to stay on the court as dealt with foul trouble. Morris has averaged 29.5 minutes through the first four games of the series, however he could see a smaller role coming off the bench.

Celtics' Marcus Morris: Foul trouble hampers output in Game 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris chipped in 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 24 minutes in Monday's 111-102 ECF Game 4 loss in Cleveland.

Morris was hampered by three first quarter fouls. He also had a three pointer negated by a rarely seen offensive shooting kick-out foul. Morris and the Celtics played a terrible first quarter, putting themselves in a big hole they were never able to get out of. With the series tied 2-2, coach Brad Stevens may decide to tinker with the starting lineup, which could result in Morris returning to a reserve role. On the other hand, Morris played a whopping 34 minutes in both of the Celtics' ECF wins in Boston. Game 5 is Wednesday night in Boston.

Celtics' Marcus Morris: Starts, scores 12 in ECF Game 2 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris generated 12 points (5-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds and three assists across 34 minutes in Tuesday's 107-94 ECF Game 2 win over the Cavaliers.

Morris again started, but deferred early to Jaylen Brown when it came to guarding LeBron James. That tactic ended in the second half, when Morris returned as James' primary defender. The move was one of many reasons the energetic Celtics were able to erase the Cavs' first half lead. Morris was a key part of a third quarter explosion for Boston, scrapping for lose balls and throwing down a few monster dunks. His tussle with Tristan Thompson further fueled Boston's late game heroics. Look for Morris to start and log heavy minutes in Game 3 on Saturday in Cleveland.

Celtics' Marcus Morris: Delivers double double in ECF Game 1 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris mustered 21 points (7-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT) and 10 rebounds over 34 minutes in Sunday's 108-83 ECF Game 1 win at home over the Cavaliers.

Many worried that Morris was setting himself up for failure when he boasted earlier in the week that "...I think I'm probably the best guy defending [Lebron James] in the league, outside of Kawhi." During Game 1, there was nothing to worry about. Morris and the rotating Celtics defense clearly frustrated King James. But more surprising was a Boston game plan that frequently had Morris driving on James. Coach Brad Stevens clearly wanted James to work on both ends of the floor, resulting in a big game for Morris and a seemingly irritated LeBron. Strong shooting from Morris, Al Horford and Jaylen Brown led to Boston shooting 51 percent from the field and 37 percent from behind the arc. Morris and his teammates will look to continue their winning ways on Tuesday night in Boston for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
