Phoenix will play Saturday against the winner of the Chicago/Toronto game.
Down a bucket at the half, the Suns outscored the Bucks 30 to 14 in the third quarter and ran away from Milwaukee 106-80 in the 2015 NBA Summer League tournament on Thursday. Five Suns scored in double figures.
Multiple Suns had the opportunity to shine at the Cox Pavilion in Las Vegas. T.J. Warren's stat line was impressive and unsurprising. Warren knocked down 9 of his 15 shot attempts and led all scorers with 23 points. He added 4 assists and 3 blocked shots.
The Summer League's leading rebounder padded his total on the glass. In 23 minutes Alex Len ripped down 9 boards and chipped in 12 points. He also blocked 4 shots.
Devin Booker struggled early hitting just 1 of his 6 first half shot attempts. He shot 4 of 5 in the third quarter and finished with 19 points on 7 of 13 shooting.
For the second consecutive game, Josh Harrellson turned heads. Two days removed from a 15 point 9 rebound performance against the Utah Jazz, Harrellson hit all 5 of his shots attempts, including 3 from behind the arc, and finished with 13 points and 6 rebounds.
Archie Goodwin again struggled with ball handling in shot selection early, but managed to contribute 18 points and 6 boards.
Milwaukee was led by Rashad Vaughn's 17 points. The Bucks will play tomorrow against the loser of the Golden State/New York game.
The Phoenix Suns enter tournament play after a 2-1 Summer League "regular season."
Hey! We made the playoffs!
The Suns were awarded the #8 seed (sounds nice) in the 2015 NBA Summer League tournament after a 91-82 win over the Utah Jazz in Las Vegas on Tuesday night. Devin Booker led the way with 18 points and Alex Len ripped down a game high 14 boards in the win. Your friendly Summer League roster reminder:
The Bucks held off Houston 97-93 last night in the first round of the tournament to advance to today's game with Phoenix. Last night's win was Milwaukee's first this summer. The Bucks hit 9 of 15 three point attempts and were led by Sean Kilpatrick's 26 points. The bad guys:
The winner advances to a Saturday matchup with the winner of the Chicago/Toronto game. The loser is back tomorrow to play the loser of Golden State and New York. Tipoff between the Suns and Bucks from the Cox Pavilion is scheduled for 1pm PT.
