Celtics' Morris cries foul over 'laughable' techs

Fresh from being docked $15,000 for public criticism of the officiating, Marcus Morris once again vented frustration about the rash of technical fouls that he has been given in recent weeks, including one in Boston's Game 4 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.


Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Marcus Morris still frustrated at all the calls going against him. "Like every game I have to get a technical foul, you know what I mean? I'm not engaging into anything, I'm not going at the referees, I'm not talking crazy to him. For me, it's just getting old, man. Fining me, teching me, it's getting old. It's just laughable at this point."

Al Horford after Game 4: "We're battling, we're playing hard, but it's not good enough just to play hard. This is why the playoffs are so challenging. But I think it's good for our group. I think we're learning. We're looking forward to being able to go back home."
