Suns forward Morris ejected against Hornets

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Phoenix Suns forward Markieff Morris has been ejected for arguing with officials.

Morris was thrown out midway through the third quarter of Wednesday night's game against the Charlotte Hornets after jawing at officials for several minutes over plays he thought should have been called fouls.

An agitated Morris left the game with 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting. He had eight rebounds.

The Suns were trailing the Hornets 78-71 at the time of his ejection.
