Marcus Morris said he regretted getting ejected from a New York Knicks preseason game against the Washington Wizards, but re-emphasized that the team will not back down.

"I just kind of overreacted a little bit … At the end of the day you never want to get thrown out of a game. There are different ways to go about different things and setting tone. It's preseason so something to learn from. I'm happy it's preseason. Things happen and it escalated ... Like I said in the beginning, we're not taking no s--t," said Morris.

Morris received a flagrant-2 foul after bouncing the ball off Justin Anderson's head.

David Fizdale added that he wants Morris to keep his edge.

"That's Marcus Morris. Our team will embody his spirit. Obviously he understands it can't be to the detriment of us. He didn't want to hurt the kid. He just told me, 'I shouldn't have made that play.' At the same time, he does have an edge to him and we want to keep that edge."
