Suns will play at 5pm on Sunday.

After a first quarter in which they shot 26% from the field, the Suns were able to erase a 7 point first quarter deficit and eliminate the Chicago Bulls from Summer League tournament play with a  91-84 win on Saturday. The starting five of Devin Booker, T.J. Warren, Alex Len, Archie Goodwin, and Mike James scored all but 6 points for the Suns.

Early on Warren looked very un-Warren-like. The Suns leading scorer in Summer League hit just 2 of his first 7 seven shots. The second half was another story. Warren featured a nice mix of jumpshots and drives to the hoop and would finish with a game high of 31 points on 13 of 23 shooting.

Several times in the first half while his teammates struggled, Devin Booker looked like the veteran leader on the floor and attacked the rim aggressively. Booker would finish with 13 points and 4 rebounds.

Archie Goodwin again displayed questionable decision making and struggled with his ball handling. Goodwin chipped in 20 points and 6 rebounds.

Len, the Summer League's leading rebounder played 18 minutes and swiped 5 off the glass.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of Saturday's game came from Mike James. James had his highest scoring game this summer with 13 points, including a pair of poster worthy slams.

Bobby Portis scored 25 points in the loss. Doug McDermott did not play for Chicago. The Bulls wrap up Summer League play with a 3-3 record.

Phoenix is back in action tomorrow evening at 5pm against the winner of tonight's Golden State Warriors vs. New Orleans Pelicans game.

The Suns/Bulls winner will play at 5pm PT on Sunday.
