TNT Network is hosting a fan awards show on June 26, and Devin Booker and Tyler Ulis are both finalists!

Looks like you can help vote a couple of young Phoenix Suns into history with the first-ever TNT Fan Vote!

For the Suns, Tyler Ulis is one of the three finalists for buzzer-beater of the year, while Devin Booker is a finalist for performance of the year.

Tyler Ulis

Ulis came off the end of the bench to make history with a last-second buzzer beater to beat former Suns player Isaiah Thomas and his Boston Celtics.

Ulis is no stranger to game-winners. See here, last Vegas Summer League.

Devin Booker

Next, up we have Devin Booker. The youngest player EVER to score 70+ points in game. The first player to score 70+ since Kobe Bryant in 2006. And only the sixth player in league HISTORY to score that many points.

Oh, and it was against IT’s Boston Celtics too.

Both players have to be favorites in their categories. Doesn’t matter that the Suns helped run up the score for Booker. They didn’t start doing that till he’d passed 60, which STILL would have been the highest scoring game ever for someone under 21.

Make sure you vote!
