Markieff Morris tied his season-high with 23 points on 9-of-12 shooting from the field (4-of-5 from three) against the Hawks on Saturday.
Morris added five rebounds, three assists and one steal in his 30 minutes of work. With John Wall out, someone had to pick up the scoring load and Morris put his hand up. He’s totaled at least 20 points in each of his last two games and is trending up value wise. He hasn’t been great this season, but tonight’s performance could solidify his turnaround into a more reliable option moving forward.
