Lindsey Hunter got frustrated with his young guys and benched Markieff Morris and Michael Beasley during Wednesday's ugly loss to the Wizards.
Morris played 11 minutes and failed to score, while Beasley played eight minutes for four points on 1-of-5 shooting. Both players had been playing pretty well lately, so this was tough to see coming. ''I wasn't happy with (any) of our young guys,'' coach Lindsey Hunter said. ''It wasn't about mistakes they made. It was about effort. It was about fight, having a sense of urgency. This is unacceptable.'' We'll have to wait and see if this keeps the young guys in the doghouse going forward, or if this was a one-time deal. Luis Scola was a beneficiary, finishing with 11 points and five boards in 34 minutes.
