Earlier this month Phoenix Suns big man Markieff Morris showed why he was the 13th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by capturing the league’s Western Conference Player of the Week Honors. The third year player averaged 22.8 points (on 69.8% shooting), eight rebounds, and two steals per game from Nov 4-10.
During Monday’s game against the Miami Heat Morris put another of his talents on display, soaring over Chris “Birdman” Andersen for the emphatic finish.
Through 12 games this season Morris is averaging 11.9 points (50% FG), 5.8 rebounds, and 1.3 steals in 26.1 minutes per game, all career-highs.
