Watching Suns-Clippers on DVR. Seems like Markieff Morris is short on every three, though that’s probably preseason

Paul Coro

After traveling again, Markieff Morris has all five of his turnovers in this quarter. LA 77-73.

Paul Coro

The #Suns have had turnover issues this preseason with 18.6/game. They have 19 w/2:44 left in the 3rd tonight. Green & Markieff each has 4.

Paul Coro

On cue, Markieff gets a T. The team just had got a delay of game when Markieff rolled the ball away from the official.

Paul Coro

If Marcus starts playing as much as Markieff, is he going to get as many technicals? He got T'd at Houston and just now.

Paul Coro

After Markieff's third foul, Len stays on Griffin and Tucker covers Hawes. Len's length has made a difference a couple times defensively.

Paul Coro

And as that was posted, Markieff dunked off a roll and hit a 3 next trip. Marcus has playing well all game and has switched onto Kobe.

Paul Coro

On the flip side, Markieff Morris' struggles continue tonight. He has two airballs and has settled for jump shots. He's 1 for 7.

Paul Coro

Markieff gets a steal but his lefthanded underhand flip outlet to lead to a Goodwin and-one fastbreak dunk was even more impressive.

Paul Coro

Barron gets his turn with Markieff up front. Thomas' pushes to drive a foul and becomes the first Sun not named Green to score in the 2nd.

Gary Lee

Not sure if Markieff or Marcus Morris, but one of them just scored.

Archie Goodwin

Steve Kyler

The terms of deals for guys like Markieff Morris and Kenneth Faired have also impacted the marketplace as well.

More #Suns notes with Hornacek on Barron, Len on his broken finger, Markieff on fouls & Parker on Suns point guards. bit.ly/1xZ50Vj

Paul Coro

#Suns 24, Spurs 23 after 1Q. Markieff: 10 pts; Dragic: 7 pts, 3 ast; Suns cut turnovers (3) while SA made 8 but they let Spurs shoot 58%.

Jeff McDonald

Suns lead Sorta Spurs 24-23 after 1Q. Markieff Morris has 10 points. Aron Baynes leads Spurs with five.

Paul Coro

Markieff has nine points in 2:05. The #Suns had eight points in the first seven minutes.

Paul Coro

Hornacek is not comfortable with Markieff at center but he'll use it against an opposing lineup of forwards like this.

Paul Coro

The #Suns preseason game tonight at Houston is tipping off on NBATV. The Suns starters are Dragic, Bledsoe, Tucker, Markieff and Plumlee.

Anthony Tolliver

Caption this!!! Lol... I must've been saying something REAL to @keefmorris hahaha instagram.com/p/uB3l8RRhCR/

Paul Coro

FINAL: #Suns 97, Nuggets 87. Markieff: 12p; Dragic: 12p; Green: 11p; Warren: 10p, 6r; Tolliver: 10p; Tucker: 6p, 10r; Thomas: 8p, 6a, 4r.

Paul Coro

PHX 80, DEN 64 after 3Q. Dragic: 12 pts; Green: 11 pts; Tolliver: 10 pts, Bledsoe: 9 pts, 4 ast; Markieff: 9 pts; Thomas: 8 pts, 4 ast.

Paul Coro

The past two Dragic drive-and-kick passes have found Tolliver and Markieff with no Denver player within 10 feet of them at the 3-point line.

Paul Coro

Preseason entertainment: Joey Crawford emerges from the #Suns huddle with a technical call on Markieff Morris. Worth the trip here.

Paul Coro

Using Markieff Morris some at center, pacing Goran Dragic's offseason and more in #Suns notes. bit.ly/1uGmi9U

Paul Coro

At half, #Suns 54-43. Bledsoe: 13 pts, 4 ast; Marcus: 10 pts, 6 reb; Markieff: 9 pts, 3 reb. PHX: 54 FG%, 9 tov; Flamengo: 38 FG%, 12 tov.

Paul Coro

With Markieff at center (a look Hornacek wants to use in moderation), the #Suns have found their way with scores on 10 of the past 11 trips.

Paul Coro

Final #Suns scrimmage stats: Markieff 22p/6r, Marcus 18p/6r, Goodwin 16p/4s, Bledsoe 14p/7a, Randolph 13p/9r, Plumlee 12p/7r, Green 10p/6r.

Paul Coro

Good sign for Markieff Morris as a stretch 4: he has his team's last 13 points and is 4 of 5 on 3s in the #Suns scrimmage.

Paul Coro

Midway thru the 2nd quarter of the #Suns scrimmage: Marcus Morris 12, Goodwin 10, Randolph 7, Plumlee 6, Bledsoe 5, Thomas 5, Markieff 5.

Paul Coro

Stuff you only get in a scrimmage: Marcus Morris takes a charge from Markieff Morris.

Paul Coro

Making up for the loss of Channing Frye falls on #Suns PFs Markieff Morris & Anthony Tolliver. bit.ly/1oGUlJs http://t.co/HdYZtVyDcR

Sean Deveney

I liked this number on Markieff Morris of @Phoenix Suns: He made 47.8% from 10-16 ft, up from 28.7% in 2012-13 sportingnews.com/nba/story/2014…

Paul Coro

.#Suns will wear sleeved orange on Fridays. Markieff (11/7), Marcus (12/12) & Thomas (2/2) got bobblehead nights, plus plush Dragon (12/2).

Paul Coro

The Morris twins had a $52M pile to split and it was no big deal to them. "We're $52 million players," Markieff said. bit.ly/1xxgwd4

Eduardo Schell

52 milliones para los gemelos Morris, pero Markieff es el 'gemelo' rico: 32 kilos y 20 para Marcus marca.com/2014/06/20/bal… vía @marca
