The Denver Nuggets lost to the Washington Wizards 123-113 on Wednesday night. With a little more than two minutes remaining and the game all but out of reach, Wizards forward Markieff Morris took a page out of the Draymond Green playbook and kicked Nuggets center Mason Plumlee right where it hurts.

The referees gave Morris a flagrant two foul, and he was ejected from the game. Afterward, Plumlee was, well, more diplomatic than I would have been.

Say a little prayer for Plumlee’s boys, and the Nuggets’ playoff hopes. They’re just one game up in the race for the Western Conference’s No. 8 seed with a brutal schedule coming up.
