The two teams will meet again on Friday in NY for another preseason game.

Marcus Morris' tenure with the New York Knicks got off to a weird start on Monday night during the team's first preseason game against the Washington Wizards.

Morris was ejected for his efforts that earned a flagrant 2 foul.

Despite losing Morris early in the game, the Knicks defeated the Wizards 104-99.

USA fighter jet crashes in Germany, pilot survives
The news comes just a week after two U.S. airmen were killed at the Spangdahlem base in a fiery vehicle crash. The U.S. military says an F-16 fighter jet has crashed in western Germany but the pilot ejected to safety.

This was the 19-year-old's first competitive basketball against NBA level talent since the Las Vegas Summer League in July, where he finished with averages of 15.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 4.2 assists on 34% shooting from the field in five games.

"Am I concerned [about a suspension]?". Morris did not know a suspension would count for a regular season contest and said he was "unprofessional". I wouldn't want to miss any regular-season games. My team needs me. I've got to be smart, set a better example. "So it is what it is".

This is pretty much peak Marcus Morris, but unfortunately for him and the Knicks, it might end up being more than just a humorous preseason moment.

Wizards star Bradley Beal, who was previously teammates with Marcus' twin brother Markieff, said he wasn't surprised by what happened. "They play hard and they compete, and they're going to talk their fair share of trash, too".
