The Suns reached the semifinals thanks to the late-game heroics of Tyler Ulis on Saturday night, but the rookie point guard had a game to forget Sunday. He finished with only 11 points, thanks to a woeful 5-for-21 shooting performance. With Ulis having an off day, Troy Williams stepped up to score 24 points, including a 14-for-15 mark at the free-throw line.

Askia Booker also stepped up his efforts, dropping 19 points off the bench.

The Suns finish their summer league campaign with a 4-2 record, while the Timberwolves will face the Chicago Bulls in the championship on Monday night.
