Phoenix Suns’ Marcus Morris lights up Utah Jazz for career-high 34 points

Feb 7, 2015, 9:22 PM | Updated: 9:23 pm

Marcus Morris has evolved into a serviceable NBA role player over his four years in the league, but the Phoenix Suns forward was the star of the show against the Utah Jazz on Friday night.

Morris caught fire in the first two quarters and had 24 points — one shy of his career high — by halftime.

He added 10 more in the second half, helping the Suns end a three-game losing streak with a 100-93 win at US Airways Center.

Not only was the 25-year-old Kansas product responsible for 34 percent of Phoenix’s offense on the evening, but he also ripped down a team-high and career-high 12 rebounds, marking his first NBA double-double.

In just under 33 minutes off the bench, Morris shot 11-of-17 from the field, 5-of-7 from behind the three-point line and 7-of-8 from the free throw line while adding a block and two steals. The Suns also outscored Utah by 16 points when the 6-foot-9 combo forward was on the floor.
