Pacers-Suns Game Could Make Sibling History

A seemingly meaningless Saturday night game between the Indiana Pacers and Phoenix Suns could make NBA history in a unique way.

The Suns feature the Morris brothers -- Marcus and Markieff -- while the Pacers have Tyler and Ben Hansbrough.

Ben Hansbrough doesn't always get off the bench, but if he does, it would be the first game in NBA history to feature two pairs of brothers.

This is the first season since the NBA was still the BAA back in 1946 that the league has fielded more than one team with a pair of siblings on their rosters.

When the Suns acquired Marcus Morris from the Houston Rockets in February, the Morris twins became just the 10th pair of brothers on the same team. The Hansbroughs were the ninth when Ben made the Pacers out of training camp.
