On Friday night, Tyler Ulis finished with a career high in points (14) and assists (7) for the Phoenix Suns.
Sunday night, however, Ulis took yet another major step up.
Ulis finished with 20 points, five assists, two rebounds, and two steals in Phoenix’s win over the Boston Celtics.
The real story of the game? Mr. Clutch did it again.

On a hilarious note, Ulis lost in the 2nd shortest jump ball in NBA history against Boston’s Isaiah Thomas (combined 138 inches). No, seriously.

(For those curious, the shortest jump ball in NBA history was between Muggsy Bogues and Troy Hudson (136 inches) back in 1999.)
The clutch gene never fades, it seems.
It’s time, Phoenix. A starting guard unit of Ulis-Bledsoe-Booker absolutely needs to happen.
