The Suns are two wins from a championship!

First up in the quest to hang a banner at the Thomas and Mack Center in 2016 are the New Orleans Pelicans. New Orleans eliminated Golden State 100-91 on Saturday night behind 24 points from Seth Curry. The Pelicans are undefeated in 2015 Summer League play. The villians:

  • #15 Jordan Aboudou
  • #22 Khem Birch
  • #12 Seth Curry
  • #31 Bryce Dejean-Jones
  • #7 Larry Drew II
  • #25 Fuquan Edwin
  • #34 Drew Gordon
  • #6 He Tianju
  • #24 Jay Hook
  • #14 Lazeric Jones
  • #2 Victor Rudd
  • #4 Will Sheehey
  • #32 Jarvis Varnado
  • #18 Gasper Vidmar

Poor shooting resulted in an early Phoenix deficit on Saturday. Still, they have T.J. Warren. In the second half T.J. Warren started to do typical T.J. Warren stuff and finished with his summer high of 31 points in a 91-84 win over Chicago. The game featured a pair of poster worthy slams from Mike James you should check out. The good guys:

  • #1 Devin Booker
  • #10 Alec Brown
  • #4 Justin Carter
  • #20 Archie Goodwin
  • #81 Luke Harangody
  • #32 Justin Harper
  • #55 Josh Harrellson
  • #16 Mike James
  • #21 Alex Len
  • #31 Mickey McConnell
  • #8 Jerel McNeal
  • #12 T.J. Warren

The winner advances to a Monday 6pm showdown agains the winner of the Atlanta/San Antonio matchup. Tip off for the Suns and Pelicans is scheduled for 5pm PT.
