The NBA Summer League Tournament is entering the semifinals tonight with the Phoenix Suns and Minnesota Timberwolves facing off at 6pm ET and the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers playing after them around 8pm ET. But how did we get to the semifinals? Two of our favorite former Cats, Jamal Murray and Tyler Ulis, faced off yesterday in a thriller. So, to hype you up for semifinal action, let’s look back at their overtime match up.
It wasn’t an easy victory for the Suns, but Ulis proved once again he can put the team on his back when they need him. Ulis finished the game with 19 points and four assists and not to mention a game-winner at the buzzer. Murray had a great game himself with 29 points, seven rebounds and three assists that brought his team close to the semifinals. But unfortunately for Murray, it was Ulis’ final shot from 35 feet behind the arc that sealed the deal for the Suns. I think we need to watch that shot again. Then hear from his best friend and teammate again Devin Booker who said he feels like a “proud big brother.”

Now don’t worry BBN, they are still brothers regardless of the tough battle yesterday and ahead. Following yesterday’s game, the former teammates posted some heartfelt Instagram messages for one another that let everyone know they were still brothers at heart.
