Suns’ Tyler Ulis drains buzzer-beating three, lifts team to Summer League semi-finals

3 Comments

We had Kentucky’s undersized point guard Tyler Ulis as a sleeper in last June’s draft. While he’s 5’9″, he has fantastic ball handling skills, uses his quickness to get into the lane, has strong court vision, and he is a quality floor general. He’s not a future All-Star, but he can be a quality point guard off the bench.

Oh, and he can drain game-winning threes. The one above in overtime Saturday sent the Suns into the Summer League semi-Finals.

Ulis is having a strong Summer League. He’s averaged 14.1 points per game on 51.1 percent shooting, and is dishing out 6.8 assists per game. According to Synergy Sports, he has averaged using 14 possessions per game (a fairly high amount in Summer League) and is scoring a quality 1.02 points per possession.

The Suns did well with this pick.
