WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 27: Markieff Morris #5 of the Washington Wizards handles the ball against the Toronto Raptors in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2018 NBA Playoffs on April 27, 2018 at the Capital One Arena in Washington, DC.

The Washington Wizards saw their season come to an end on Friday with a 102-92 Game 6 loss to the Toronto Raptors, but forward Markieff Morris doesn't believe the series is indicative of the teams' talents.

After the loss, Morris—who averaged 9.4 points and 6.0 rebounds per game in the first round—made it known, via ABC 7 News' Erin Hawksworth, that he felt his team was better than its opponent: "Sometimes the better teams don't win."

Nevermind the fact the Raptors (59-23) finished the regular season with the best record in the Eastern Conference, a whopping 16 games ahead of the Wizards (43-39). [Yes, John Wall played in just 41 games this season—but the team did go on an 11-3 stretch without the All-Star.] Forget the fact Toronto won four out of six games, including a close-out on Washington's home court.

Morris is certainly entitled to his opinion. However, Toronto has proven itself to be a top team all season long. In the end, Morris and Co. were unable to make enough plays to upset the No. 1 seed in the East.
