A week after making his Suns debut, Marcus Morris starred in a win over Atlanta that gave the Suns consecutive victories against winning teams for the first time since mid-December. The Suns often talk about how Marcus Morris’ presence has rejuvenated his twin brother Markieff Morris’ energy and spirit, but the move has done as much for Marcus.
The Morris twins, or Team FOE (Family Over Everything), as they prefer, accounted for 16 of the Suns’ final 27 points in closing out the Hawks.
“That’s how it’s supposed to be,” Marcus said about them finishing the game together.
“That’s how it should be,” Markieff said moments later on the same topic.
Basketball never stops because their analysis starts on the ride home and extends through video games and meals. After a game, they watch it to critique one another.
They liked what they saw in Friday’s review, especially Marcus’ 16-point, five-rebound, two-steal game. After his clutch 3-pointer was overshadowed by Wes Johnson’s miraculous 3 at San Antonio, Marcus made two 3s in the fourth quarter Friday to stave off Atlanta.
Marcus has shot 48 percent in five Suns appearances and already has eight steals in 80 minutes of play. On the league’s second-worst 3-point-shooting team, Marcus has made six of 10 3s.
A whole greater than the sum of the Morris twins
