The Phoenix Suns are surprising the NBA so far with a 3-2 record. How are they doing it? They are getting breakout performances from new acquisition Eric Bledsoe, who is averaging 21.0 points per game, and castoffs like Gerald Green.

Oh, who are we kidding…they are winning because of TWIN POWER!

Both Markieff and Marcus Morris were drafted in the first round out of Kansas: Markieff going 13th overall to Phoenix and Marcus going 14th overall to Houston. Last spring the Rockets traded Marcus to Phoenix, and "Twinsanity" was born.

 

Though both Marcus and Markieff took a few games to get going, both of them have excelled of late. First in yesterday's win.

 

And in tonight's loss.

 

So which Morris has been top twin for Phoenix in 2013-14? It's a tough call.

Markieff has the better shot selection, shooting more than 18 percent higher, mostly from close range. But Marcus has pulled down more rebounds. For the time being, the advantage in this battle of the Morrises belongs to Markieff.

That's the good part of having both twins, though: Phoenix will never have to worry about being the team with the lesser Morris.
