It's not everyday we see two 5'9" players go head-to-head in an NBA contest, and it's even rarer to imagine those same two guys getting tied up on a possession and being forced into a jump ball situation.

But we had all of that in Phoenix on Sunday, as Boston's Isaiah Thomas and Suns rookie Tyler Ulis got to jump it up at center court during some second-quarter action.

While this was quite the enjoyable moment, these two are far from novelty acts. Thomas is a legitimate All-Star who's second in the league in scoring this season with an average of 29.4 points per game, and Ulis led all scorers with 15 points through the first two quarters of this one.
