After running roughshod over the competition through their first three games, Phoenix is back in action against Philadelphia.

Unlike the Suns, Philadelphia’s Summer League squad is 0-3, but there have been some great flashes shown by Zhaire Smith and Jonah Bolden.

Speaking of those two 76ers, they will be great tests for the Suns’ top two picks. Smith’s athletic bounce and length will be great to see up-close against Mikal Bridges while Bolden’s stretch-five components will be the first matchup of that kind for Deandre Ayton.
