Markieff Morris on Upset of Warriors: ‘My Wife Tells Me All the Time I’ve Got Big Nuts’

With his team up by two, Markieff Morris snagged a rebound off a Stephen Curry miss from deep with five seconds remaining in the Washington Wizards' Tuesday-night tilt with the Golden State Warriors.

Morris was then fouled, and hit both free throws to ice a big victory for the surging Wizards.

Speaking of big victories, the power forward said after the game that the size of his testicles (metaphorically, we think) had a lot to do with his clutch free throws.

"I don't want to jinx myself. My wife tells me all the time that I've got some big nuts," he overshared with reporters in the locker room. "I put my nuts on the line tonight."

He's not wrong—when you're playing against Draymond Green, no one's balls are safe from the line of fire.

In addition to his nuts-aided free throws, Morris was instrumental in the 112-108 win over the first-place Warriors, whose star forward Kevin Durant exited the game two minutes in after suffering a hyperextended knee. Morris scored 22 points to go with four blocks, two steals, and six rebounds.

Bradley Beal led the Wizards with 25 points, and John Wall distributed a ridiculous 19 assists.

In their last 20 games, the Wizards are 16-4 after starting the year 19-19.
