At least through one start.

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Sacramento Kings beat the Phoenix Suns 107-101 last night. Suns guard Eric Bledsoe didn’t play, reports are that he’s done for the year, and Phoenix trotted out its youngest lineup in franchise history. The young guys got plenty of run, and the Suns still lose keeping Tankathon 2017 on the tracks.

Everyone wins.

Especially fans of guard Tyler Ulis. In the first start of his young career, the rookie put up some numbers that we haven’t seen since Steve Nash put the first nail in the Vancouver Grizzlies’ coffin with a 17 point, 12 assist, 7 rebound effort in 1996.

Let’s watch:

Pretty damn impressive. Ulis was on the court for 38 minutes against Sacramento, and we can expect to see similar numbers the rest of the year.

Phoenix is back in action tomorrow when they host the Orlando Magic. Tip from Talking Stick Resort Arena is scheduled for 7p PT.
