Josh Smith and Stan Van Gundy weren't the only two to engage in a 'jawing session' during Wednesday's Pistons-Suns game. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and the Suns' Markieff Morris each picked up technical fouls in the second quarter after a little confrontation that looked like nothing more than some mid-game pleasantries.
Well, a chord was obviously struck with Morris, who carried the apparent beef into the post-game interviews, proudly refusing to mince words about Caldwell-Pope's near game-winner with a few seconds left in the game:
Morris on KCP: "Caldwell-Pope got it and you know he doesn’t have any heart so we knew he was going to miss it."— Vincent Ellis (@Vincent_Ellis56) November 20, 2014
It's no secret that Morris likes to run his mouth. Morris has been fined 14 times since he entered the league four seasons ago, which includes a technical foul he picked up against the Pistons last season when he had the fourth-most technicals in the league.
The Suns have 14 technicals this season, the most in the NBA.
I await KCP's rebuttal.
