Following their 91-78 loss to the Mavs, the Suns fired head coach Jeff Hornacek. Losing Eric Bledsoe for the season and an unhappy Markieff Morris created a tough situation for the former guard.
The Suns have lost 19 of their last 21 games and have the worst record in the NBA since December 20. Check out the original report below via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:
General manager Ryan McDonough informed Hornacek of the decision upon the Suns’ return to Phoenix after a 91-78 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night.
For the 14-35 Suns, the situation turned into an impossible task for Hornacek. A month ago, ownership fired Hornacek’s top two assistant coaches, leaving him with an inexperienced staff. The team also lost Eric Bledsoe to a season-ending knee injury and has been dealing with an unhappy Markieff Morris the entire season since his twin brother, Marcus, was traded in the offseason.
The Suns were missing four players, including their three top scorers in Hornacek’s final game as coach.
