Phoenix came out slow against the Bulls on Saturday, but were able to turn it around after the first quarter in which the team shot just 26 percent.

The Suns starting lineup of Archie Goodwin, Devin Booker, T.J. Warren, Alex Len, and Mike James scored 85 of the Suns 91 points in the contest.

Warren led all scorers with 31 points on 13-for-23 shooting from the field. Warren displayed his ability to hit mid-range jump shots as well as get to the rim en route to his terrific scoring performance.

Goodwin continued his strong Summer League play as he went for 20 points and snagged six boards. First round draft pick Booker played well too as he scored 13 points and also grabbed four rebounds in the winning effort against Chicago.

Len didn’t have his best game of the Summer League thus far, but was still efficient on the boards as he finished with five rebounds of his own.

James came out of nowhere and put up a 13-point performance for the Suns. His 13 points were the most he has scored in a Summer League game this year for Phoenix.

Phoenix will tip-off against the New Orleans Pelicans tomorrow night with the winner taking on the winner of the San Antonio Spurs v. Atlanta Hawks game.
