Power forward Paul Millsap may be the Hawks' best player, but it was Wizards big man Markieff Morris who got the best of him in Washington's 114-107 victory in Game 1 on Easter Sunday. Morris not only put up 21 points with seven rebounds and four blocks, but afterwards Millsap complained about Morris' physical style of play.

Millsap said the Wizards "were playing MMA," in reference to the team as a whole, but Morris in particular. Those two will be a key matchup throughout this series.

Wizards forward Kelly Oubre, Jr. believes Morris has the advantage, despite Millsap boasting four All-Star team nods to Morris' none.

"Millsap is an All-Star. But honestly, in my opinion, Keef is better than him," Oubre said. "I tell him that every day. Obviously, people respect Millsap. I respect Millsap to the fullest, but we have one of the best power forwards in the game of basketball right now with this team. He goes out and shows that every day."

Morris certainly backed up Oubre's claim in Game 1. We'll see if he can continue that moving forward.
