A late 15-0 Clips run put the Suns away but Markieff Morris' T & benching were the lasting images of #SunsVsClippers. bit.ly/1uOSUkR

Gary Lee

Thought Marcus and Markieff Morris were the only twins in the NBA, but I forgot about Dwight Howard and Joey Dorsey of the Houston Rockets.

Paul Coro

Markieff did get T'd for talking to a ref and that is why he sat. Hornacek: "It's driving us all crazy with the technicals." #SunsVsClippers

Paul Coro

Markieff Morris picked up a T for talking to Barnes but he's not coming out on the Hornacek rule because he's shooting FTs. #SunsVsClippers

Dan Woike

Markieff Morris called for a tech on court, Marcus Morris feels it on bench.

Ben Bolch

Blake Griffin just pretty much sent Markieff Morris back to Kansas.

Paul Coro

More clutch Keef. Markieff gets his second driving 3-point play in 65 seconds to tie the game with 16.6 seconds to go. #SunsVsRockets

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets did everything possible to take away 3-pointers. Instead, Dorsey fouled Markieff Morris as he put in a layup.

Paul Coro

Hornacek goes to 3 points guards at a new time -- early in the third quarter -- after Markieff's fourth foul. HOU 64-58. #SunsVsRockets

Eric Pincus

Just fantasy traded my extra guard depth (Mo, Jack, Jamal) for Markieff, Giannis & McLemore

Brett Pollakoff

If accurate, Dwight leads in goaltends (17) RT @bbstats: Markieff Morris leads NBA in kicked ball violations (16) - nbaminer.com/nasty-stats/

Paul Coro

The Lakers are on a 11-0 run after that Young 4-point play. Foul by Markieff Morris, who just took a 3 that Hornacek hated. #SunsVsLakers

Amin Elhassan

Markieff just put Ed Davis on a poster

Paul Coro

Hornacek is going with Plumlee and Wright together but it is because of Markieff's two fouls this time. Tied at 16. #SunsVsLakers

Amin Elhassan

Nice give and go between Markieff and Bledsoe after Bled picked up the dribble

Darnell Mayberry

Westbrook picks up his NBA-leading 10th technical foul of the season. Was tied with Markieff Morris for the league lead. Now sits alone.

Tuesday night's two hottest players are still going. Markieff has the Suns' last 9 points. Mo Williams has 11. PHX 30-27. #SunsVsWolves

Paul Coro

Markieff told @AZSports that his refusal to talk after scoring 35 "was just me being childish ... I just wanted to take a day off media."

Zach Lowe

Finally got around to a full Cavs-Suns watch. Markieff Morris is soooo good. Cavs D just falls in on itself once you get them scrambling.

Paul Coro

The #Suns went up 19 and won despite blowing the lead, riding Markieff Morris' career-high 35. bit.ly/1yho5Vn http://t.co/hTmcPtVUeu

Tom Haberstroh

Funny how Markieff Morris had his best quarter in the fourth when Kevin Love benched. 11 pts on 5-7 FG with mostly LeBron on him.

Tas Melas

Markieff Morris had a career night but it wasn’t just the 35 points, it was LeBron talking trash and feeling the need to guard him at times.

Mike Prada

What a game for Markieff Morris. Posting up, pick and popping, protecting the rim, switching out … he’s turning into a really good player.

Alex Len

#SunsNation who's excited about that W? Great atmosphere tonight, see yall friday! S/O to @Markieff Morris on the career high!

Paul Coro

Markieff Morris refused comment after his career-high 35-point game. #SunsVsCavs

Ben Golliver

Markieff Morris made as many field goals (15) as Love, Mozgov, Irving, Jones, Thompson, Marion, Miller & Dellevedova combined

Paul Coro

Michael Lee

Eddie Johnson on Kevin Love watching 4thQ from bench: "He was watching when he was on the floor because Markieff was lighting him up." #suns

Michael Lee

Markieff Morris with career-high 35 pts vs #cavs. A few more games like this & I might have an easier time telling him apart from Marcus

Paul Coro

Markieff's career-high 35 points is a Suns season high for any player. But that D play on Iriving might've been his best work. #SunsVsCavs

Chris Haynes

Markieff Morris and LeBron James talking trash to one another. Morris said "You're flopping all the time."

Mike Richman

Upstart Cavs looking for an upset over perennial MVP Markieff Morris and the Suns. I think that's it at least.

Jason Walker

Markieff going all Mo Williams on Cleveland.

Paul Coro

Heck, the Cavs have put LeBron James' muscle on Markieff and Keef still scored. He's 15 for 18. #SunsVsCavs

Chris Mannix

Sometimes you can blame the coach. Sometimes you have to point the finger at the players who let Markieff Morris go off for 31-points.

Paul Coro

Markieff Morris is keeping the Suns from blowing the game. He has a career-high 31. No Cav has been able to cover him. PHX 94-93 #SunsVsCavs

Paul Coro

Hornacek has played Wright w/Plumlee and Len during this stretch. No big to spread the floor. Markieff is coming back. PHX 87-85 #SunsVsCavs

Paul Coro

After missing the follow, Markieff Morris gets a frustration foul and is the 3rd Suns player to foul out. Suns are 0-7 in 2OT. #SunsAtGrizz
