Found July 19, 2012 on Fox Sports Arizona:
First-round draft pick Kendall Marshall, playing in his second game for the Suns Summer League team, made only one of 10 shots Wednesday night as the Suns (1-2) suffered a 78-61 loss to the New Orleans Hornets. Marshall, who attempted only one shot in his first game, was more aggressive and confident in running the offense. He had five assists and two turnovers while playing a team-high 30 minutes. Second-year forward Markieff Morris led the Suns with 13 points and six rebounds but made only four of 13 shots from the field and one of five 3-pointers. I just came out more relaxed, Marshall told Suns.com. Obviously, the outcome was still the same, and you just have to score the ball as a team. Individually, I just felt more relaxed out there, and it was nice to get one game under my belt yesterday. "He's got to figure it out," Suns coach Dan Majerle said. "We've thrown a lot at him. I just told him don't be nervous, have fun out there." Marcus Landry added 11 points for the Suns.
