Whether you’re talking about the NBA or the NBDL, the Suns are one of the most exciting teams in the league.

Three days after the Northern Arizona Suns of the NBA’s Developmental League earned a road win against the Texas Legends thanks to Askia Booker’s buzzer-beater, Xavier Silas drilled nine three-pointers to beat the Sioux Falls Skyforce, 127-123.

Silas is a 6-foot-5, 198 pound guard out of Northern Illinois. He’s in his second season with the NAZ franchise, after spending the better part of the last four years overseas.

He can shoot. Silas finished with a career-high 37 points against Sioux Falls. On the season he connects on 42.2% of his three-point attempts, good for ninth in the league.

Watch this team. They’re fun, and their games are streamed on Facebook Live. The Northern Arizona Suns are back in action Wednesday when they host the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
