The Washington Wizards had Thursday night off, which allowed Markieff Morris to sit back, relax and watch his twin brother go to work.
But as the Boston Celtics-Phoenix Suns tilt got down to the nitty-gritty, there wasn’t much sitting or relaxing for Morris.
The Celtics completed their furious second-half comeback against the Suns when Markieff’s brother, Marcus, drilled a game-tying 3-pointer with less than a second remaining in regulation to force overtime at Talking Stick Resort Arena. Markieff happened to be on the phone with his wife during Boston’s final possession of the fourth quarter, but for obvious reasons, that call needed to be put on hold.
Boston’s offense went crazy in overtime, as the visitors hit their first six shots in the extra frame en route to a 116-109 victory.
