Morrison, the No. 3 pick in the draft, was just 3-of-12 against the team from his home state as he started in place of the injured Raymond Felton. The former Gonzaga star missed all three of his shots in the decisive third quarter, including a layup on a fast break during Seattle's 9-2 run early in the period that put the Sonics ahead to stay....but then showed us all how to use anaphoric asyndeton.
He managed only nine points and one rebound and failed to get to the free throw line.
"It's not the ball, it's not the basket, it's not the coach. It's me."In his defense, it was the first time he had failed to score in double figures. Out of his defense, he scored 2 points against the Nuggets two days later, as Charlotte dropped to 1-5.
