Phoenix Suns forward Marcus Morris had an odd outing last night as his Suns team went up against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
During the third quarter of the game, Morris tussled for the ball with the T'Wolves Thaddeus Young and came up holding his face. Morris was annoyed at no foul being given and had a word with a referee, who gave Morris a technical at the next break in play.
None of this is too far out of the ordinary so far, but the way that the 25-year old Morris reacted was definitely something that is incredibly rarely seen in the NBA.
After getting T'ed up, Morris started shouting - and we mean absolutely screaming - at his own head coach, Jeff Hornacek. You can watch it here.
According to AZcentral sports Suns insider Paul Coro, Morris was upset after getting hit in the nose from Young and went completely postal when his head coach Hornacek refused to back him up.

Unsurprisingly, Morris didn't return to the game after the incident and he apologized after the Suns came out 113-111 winners.
“It was heat of the moment,” Morris said. “Coach knows I’ve got a lot of respect for him. As soon as the game was over, I apologized to him and the team, especially the younger guys for them having to see that.
"I felt like I got hit in the nose and my nose was bleeding and he had took me out so I was really upset about it."
Morris finished the game with 8 points on 4-for-7 shooting. Point guard Goran Dragic led the Suns with 25 points and 4 rebounds, while 1st overall pick Andrew Wiggins top scored for Minnesota with 25 himself.
