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.
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.
.@tulis3 is the first @Suns rookie with at least 12 points and 12 assists in a game since Steve Nash at VAN on 11/14/96— Phoenix Suns Stats (@SunsBballComm) March 16, 2017
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.
