Don't tell me it's just the Summer League. I want to beat the Spurs.

This evening Phoenix and San Antonio will do battle for the summer's most coveted prize (other than a roster spot) a Summer League championship!

The Suns shook off a second consecutive slow start on Sunday and rode a 31 point performance by Devin Booker to a 93-87 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. Phoenix dealt New Orleans its first loss of the summer and got another big effort from Josh Harrellson, this time 19 points and 9 rebounds. Your Suns:

  • #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

San Antonio has been doing it with defense. On Sunday the Spurs held Atlanta to 32% shooting, eliminating the Hawks 75-68.  Kyle Anderson, recently named Summer League MVP, led San Antonio with 22 points and 8 rebounds. The enemy:

  • #1 Kyle Anderson
  • #55 Darion Atkins
  • #45 Dairis Bertans
