Boston Celtics power forward Marcus Morris sounded off about NBA officiating Friday night after receiving a technical foul in the team's Game 3 road loss to the Milwaukee Bucks at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Tom Westerholm of MassLive relayed comments Morris made to reporters about potentially being targeted by the referees.
"I can't even speak on it, man," he said. "It's been the same s--t all year. I'm expecting it. They knew what they wanted before the game started. They knew who they wanted to go after. So that's on them."
Morris finished the regular season with 11 technicals, which tied for the NBA's seventh-highest total, and two ejections.
The 28-year-old Philadelphia native has accumulated 42 techs over the past five seasons after tallying just four across his first three years.

Morris' technical in Friday's 116-92 defeat came after he said in early April he'd avoid such situations during the team's postseason run.
"I promise I won't get no techs, unless we're just getting blatantly cheated," he told reporters. "I want my team to win so I won't put my team in jeopardy or anything like that. But I'm still passionate about the game like I said. So I kind of feel like I'm getting that Rasheed Wallace treatment, just, quick trigger, quick trigger."
The Celtics hold a 2-1 lead after capturing the first two games of the series at home. Game 4 is set for Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. ET.
