Markieff Morris slaps Stephen A Smith on butt after Game 6 (Video)
The Wizards defeated the Celtics to force Game 7 on Friday and Markieff Morris was pretty pumped up afterward.
Staring at the possibility of having their season end on their home floor, Washington came away with a win in Game 6 thanks to a three-pointer by John Wall with less than four seconds remaining in regulation to give the Wizards a 92-91 lead. That would end up being the final score.
Wall was understandably fired up afterward and jumped up on the scorer’s table to let out his emotions. Morris opted for a different method. As the Wizards forward made his way towards the tunnel to the locker room, he gave ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith a slap on the butt. The look on Smith’s face after the fact was priceless. Take a look.

Smith picked the Wizards to win the series on “First Take” and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. That said, he’s also been critical of them at various points throughout the postseason. However, on Friday, Smith had to be pleased the Wizards were able to get the win, keeping his prediction alive for atleast another couple of days, even if it resulted in him on the receiving end of what looks to be a pretty hard slap.
