John Wall sank a deep three-pointer with 3.5 seconds left as the Washington Wizards outlasted the Boston Celtics, 92-91, to force a deciding Game 7. Emotions at the Verizon Center were raw after the big victory, leading Markieff Morris to smack ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith on the butt as he walked to the postgame locker room.
Say what you want about a Morris’ wandering hands, but he should be commended for committing to the rear-end slap. There was some significant force behind it.
Smith took no exception to the behavior — at least publically. If he had, Morris could have simply pinned it on his twin.
