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.
