Phoenix Suns Crown the Sacramento Kings for Easy Win on Saturday Night
While J-Dud nabbed a double-double with 20 points (including a trio of three-pointers) and 10 rebounds, the rookie Morris racked 18 points off the bench in his 26 minutes of game time.
It was definitely a hot night offensively for Planet Orange, as they shot 50 percent overall, racked up 21 buckets in the paint, and accumulated 12 fast break points. Channing Frye and Marcin Gortat also score in double figures with 17 points and 15 points, respectively.
It was a low-scoring game for both Steve Nash (4 points) and Grant Hill (7 points), but both had perfectly acceptable excuses for their lack of offense. Nash got whacked in the lip by Sacramento's Isaiah Thomas in the first quarter and missed a good chunk of the game getting four stitches. Meanwhile, Hill was busy containing the Kings' biggest scorer and leading a surprising surge of defense by the Suns.
