Ulis took charge for a Suns team playing without Devin Booker and first-round draft pick Marquese Chriss. The Suns took the lead for good, 68-66, on a pullup jumper by Ulis with 5:03 left.

Troy Williams and Kyle Kuric scored 15 points apiece for the Suns, and first-round draft pick Dragan Bender had 10 points and nine rebounds, although he shot 3 of 13 overall and 2 of 9 from 3-point range.
