Tweet 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.

The Phoenix Suns’ Markieff Morris took the “Birdman” Chris Andersen on a first class flight to his highlight reel with a monster baseline jam all over Andersen.

The post Gerald Green Throws Down Vicious Windmill Dunk vs. Magic | Bleacher Report appeared first on Sports Rivals And Trash Talk.
Gerald Green has managed to hang around the NBA, despite having no real semblance of an offensive game to speak of. One thing Green can do, and do well is dunk.
The Suns are trying to become a running team, and that fits right into the strengths that Green does have.
Green had 20 points against the Magic, including this Dominique-style windmill dunk on a fast break. You could...

Following the Miami Heat’s 107-92 triumph over the Phoenix Suns at AmericanAirlines Arena on Monday, Dwyane Wade proved that Chris Bosh isn’t the only player on the Heat roster (see here, here and here) capable of showing off mad videobomb skills.

Phoenix Suns’ guard Eric Bledsoe missed his fifth consecutive game on Monday night against the Miami Heat. The Suns lost the game by a score of 107-92 to drop to 7-7 on the season. With the Suns facing the 13-2 Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday, it’s important that Bledsoe returns to the lineup.
Ethan J. Skolnick, who covers the Miami Heat for Turner Sport tweeted the...
There are no freebie victories in the NBA.
Apparently, there barely are even freebies in a NBA victory.
The Suns became the first NBA team in 36 years to win a game with one free throw made, setting franchise lows Sunday night for free throws made and attempted (three) in a 104-96 victory over Orlando at Amway Center.
“Pistol” Pete Maravich was part of the only other team...

When he was in Los Angeles playing for the Clippers, Eric Bledsoe was the backup to Chris Paul – wo is regarded as right now the best point guard in all of the NBA. Playing behind the perennial all-star, the soon to be 24-year-old only saw the court about 20 minutes a night. But observers lauded over his talent and ability, saying that if Bledsoe were the main guy on a team, he...

Goran Dragic had his way with the Magic defense most of the night, dribbilng into the paint and finishing himself or finding the shooter on the weak side. At the end of the game, with the Suns clinging to a three-point lead, it was certainly on the veteran point guard to calm his team down and pull out a road win.
Dragic did just that, scoring seven...
