We’ll have it for you everyday, hopefully in the morning. The links to these full articles are in the title, take a look at the entire stories.

 Rant Sports: As Goes Gerald Green, So Go The Phoenix Suns

“Gerald Green is no doubt an impact player for the Phoenix Suns this season, but it’s a phenomenon that cuts both ways. When Green plays at his best, the Suns can defeat any team in the NBA on any given night. On the flip side, when Green has an off night, the Suns are vulnerable to pretty much anyone. When Green scored a career-high 41 points against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Mar. 6, the Suns grabbed a big win over the Western Conference’s top team. On Tuesday night, however, Green struggled to find the basket and failed to catch fire offensively. He scored only eight points, shooting just 4-for-14 including 0-for-6 from three-point range, and the Suns suffered an embarrassing 110-101 home loss to the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers.”

“After 64 games, the upstart, surprising Phoenix Suns have finally delivered what the preseason and mid season prognosticators predicted. Losers of seven of their last 10 games, the Suns have dropped from 7th in the playoff picture to 9th and into lottery land. They sit two games back of surging Memphis and Dallas with 18 games left in the season.”

NBA.com/Suns: Morris Twins Showing Value on Defensive End

“Blocks from big men impress people. It’s confirmation that they’re aware of their height and rise (literally) to the challenge of an opposing player going up for a shot. The Morris twins don’t let them get to that point. Quietly, Markieff and Marcus Morris have become proficient defenders by getting their stances low and their hands on the ball.”
