Phoenix Suns T.J. Warren named to first-team All-NBA Summer League

New, comments

The Summer Suns face the Spurs' version on Monday night for the Summer League Championship. Of course it's the Spurs. Could it be anyone else?

Making matters ever more face-palming is that the Spurs second-year player Kyle Anderson, nicknamed Slo-Mo for his style of play, has won the SL MVP award for averaging more than 22 points and nearly 6 rebounds per game.

The Suns' T.J. Warren was named to the first-team All-NBA Summer League Team as one of the top five performers during the first 6 games. These teams are voted on by the media members still in attendance over the weekend for the mini-playoffs. Warren made the second-team All-NBA Summer League a year ago.

Warren is a master at scoring form anywhere inside 15 feet, making several acrobatic plays to get his shot off no matter how many defenders surround him. Here's highlights of Warren's 31 points on Saturday that fueled the Suns comeback to push the team into the Semi-Finals on Saturday.

Yesterday, against the Pelicans, Warren slightly pulled his hammy in the first quarter and only scored two points in the Suns big win.

Hopefully, he will be healthy in the Finals tonight against the Spurs.
