VIDEO: Wizards' Markieff Morris blocks two Hawks players back-to-back

Markieff Morris blocked two Hawks shots back-to-back in the second quarter of Game 1 of Atlanta's first round playoff series against the Wizards on Sunday.

First, he got Ersan Ilyasova. Then, he got Dwight Howard.

Morris was understandly very fired up about it afterwards and let out a big scream to the crowd.

Watch the whole sequence right here: 

Morris had 10 points and three rebounds in the first half. It was his first ever playoff game, but he sure didn't look like it.

Bobby Portis wants everyone to pay Zion Williamson

Bobby Portis has one thought for everyone profiting off of March Madness: Pay those student-athletes.

The Wizards forward tweeted in response to a report that CBS will have a camera dedicated to college phenom Zion Williamson during the NCAA tournament.

After the Duke freshman forward tore through his Nike sneaker in a game against North Carolina one month ago, many current and former NBA players wondered if Williamson should sit out the rest of the season and preserve himself for paid, professional playing time.

Williamson is expected to go first overall in the NBA draft.
