Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

New York Knicks forward Marcus Morris is not afraid of anyone. Just ask Joel Embiid.

It appears that Morris isn’t about to back down when going up against Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic, either.

The two got into it early in their teams’ game at Madison Square Garden Thursday evening. It looks like Morris shoved Jokic before the Nuggets All-Sar returned the favor. And so on.

Morris just missed a game after his one-year old son injured him at home. The last thing he wants is to exchange blows with the 7-foot, 250-plus pound Jokic.

It will be interesting to see just how testy this one gets between a great Nuggets squad and legit one of the worst teams in sports.
