“Man, I enjoy going against Melo,” Morris said before the game (via Steve Popper of Newsday). “Growing up he always was my favorite player. Even when I came into the draft, I was like, yeah, I’m going to be like Melo. You know what I’m saying? Over the years it’s been really good to go against him. I watched a lot of film on him.
“Melo’s been one of the best scorers in this league for a long time. He’s still doing it. I’m very happy for him, very impressed that he could come from not playing for a while and make a great impact like he has.”
