Matchup Intro

Celtics rookie and 12th seeded Semi Ojeleye will have to face off against a potential version of himself in 5th seed Marcus Morris. Both players are versatile forwards who play with athleticism coupled with a high level of physicality. Morris has an advantage over Ojeleye with his isolation scoring ability, but you never know what can happen if shots aren’t falling.

So will Morris move on to the next round against his new teammate or will Ojeleye pull off the upset in this match up of physical yet versatile forwards? The winner of this matchup will take on the winner of Marcus Smart vs Abdel Nader.
