Video: Suns’ Josh Jackson puts Markieff Morris on a poster after lazy inbounds
In case you didn’t know, Phoenix Suns second-year swingman Josh Jackson can jump out of the gym, and Washington Wizards small forward Markieff Morris was reminded that on Saturday in the nation’s capital.
Josh Jackson and the Suns entered their Saturday matchup against the Wizards on a four-game winning streak. Phoenix is playing its best basketball in years and the confidence the players are showing right now is really good to see.
The Wizards, on the other hand, are a walking disaster right now and the following play pretty much summarizes their season in a nutshell.
Markieff Morris in-bounded the ball in a lazy fashion, allowing Jackson to steal the ball. After he stole it, Jackson took the ball and dunked in Morris’ grill.
Josh Jackson, LEAVE HIM ALONE 😳

Some fans in Phoenix have been disappointed with Josh Jackson so far. He was the fourth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft out of Kansas and primed to be a franchise player for the Suns.
Josh Jackson averaged 13.1 points per game during his rookie season, but the high-flyer has seen his scoring average drop down to 9.1 this year. The 21-year-old is shooting 38.8 percent from the field, 30.3 percent from the 3-point line, and 64.3 percent from the free-throw line.
Suns fans want to see more dunks like this from Josh Jackson. Maybe that play will jump-start his season.
