Celtics’ Morris says Eric Bledsoe was served dose of karma
Marcus Morris thinks that the stars aligned to serve Eric Bledsoe his L.
Speaking with reporters Saturday after his Boston Celtics eliminated Bledsoe’s Milwaukee Bucks with a win in Game 7 of their first-round series, Morris was asked about teammate Terry Rozier’s big performance (26 points on five 3s). Morris replied that Bledsoe, who had been feuding with Rozier throughout the series, got what was coming to him, per Tom Westerholm of MassLive.

Bledsoe, who was actually teammates with Morris on the Phoenix Suns from 2013 to 2015, found himself in a war of words (and fisticuffs) with Rozier, his matchup at the point guard position, from the very start. Rozier got the best of him though by putting up better individual stats and by winning the series.
All in all, it definitely qualified as a day to forget for Bledsoe, who was also taunted hilariously by the Boston crowd during the season-ending loss.
