The Suns scored a franchise-worst 24 points in the first half last night, en route to a 101-74 blowout loss to the Spurs in Phoenix. After the game, Suns forward Markieff Morris (19 points) voiced his discontent with what he perceives as a lack of fan support in the team’s home arena. “They don’t boo but they don’t cheer much, either,” he said, among other things.

The full quotes, from the AP:

After the game, Markieff Morris was critical of what he perceived to be a lack of consistent fan support in Phoenix — and not just on this night.

 

“They don’t boo but they don’t cheer much, either,” he said. “I know we’re a lot better than that. I know Phoenix fans are a lot better than that. We have a lot of genuine fans that cheer for us, the ones that’s in the first row, the second row, the third row. But once you go up you feel like people are just at the game watching.

 

“I just think we expect more from the fans,” he continued. “That’s basically what I’m getting to. We expect more. We expect this to be a home-court advantage every time we step on the court no matter if we’re playing Orlando or we’re playing Cleveland.”
