Even during the Celtics' four-game losing skid, Marcus Morris is staying optimistic.

After their loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday, the fifth-seeded C's found themselves falling even further behind in the Eastern Conference standings. Morris isn't panicking, however. On Thursday night, he had an encouraging message for Celtics fans.

Morris and the Celtics will look to turn things around Friday night when they host the Washington Wizards.
