Markieff Morris and Archie Goodwin Scrum: Sun Sets in Phoenix
It's not been a good year for the Phoenix Suns or pretty much anyone associated with them. If not for the Philadelphia 76ers, the Suns would easily be your worst team in the NBA with a 14-40 record.
Granted injuries on a thin team have taken a toll, but it appears everyone in the land of the Sun is a bit too uptight.
Part way through Wednesday nights 114-102 loss to the Golden State Warriors, Suns forward Markieff Morris and guard Archie Goodwin got into a bit of a scuffle near the bench. The two had to be separated after Morris pushed Goodwin.
Depending on who you talk to the issue was something to do with Morris trying to encourage Goodwin after a bad play off the court.
No matter the story it's a bad look for a once proud franchise that has seen former coach and player Jeff Hornacek canned just over a week ago amidst rumors of constant infighting. Morris himself has been the subject of discussion after making it known he was unhappy after the team traded his twin brother Maurice in the offseason.
The team is functional with interim head coach Earl Watson (also a former player) but we are betting everyone in Phoenix is probably wishing the season would end sooner rather than later.
