Under new head coach Earl Watson, Markieff Morris was put back into the starting lineup and given the green light. He responded by putting up season-highs of 30 poitns, 11 boards and 1 nasty dunk on Jonas V.
“I had a feeling if I gave him positive encouragement and let him know that no matter what, we love him no matter what happened beyond basketball,” Watson said, “and give him an opportunity to play and let him know he is going to play, he is going to get big minutes.”
