Ulis provided 14 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight assists, two steals and one block during the Suns' 124-97 win over the Mavericks on Tuesday. Ulis finished out the regular season by scoring in double figures in each of the Suns' last 10 games. The former Kentucky Wildcat had his best season of his young career where he averaged 7.8 points, 4.4 assists and 1.8 rebounds across 71 games played, all career bests.
Ulis posted 15 points (5-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 assists and two rebounds across 37 minutes in Sunday's 117-100 loss to the Warriors. Ulis continues to thrive in the absence of Elfrid Payton (knee), which is likely to extend into the final game of the season against the Mavericks on Tuesday. The 22-year-old has posted nine consecutive double-digit scoring efforts, generating double-doubles in two of those contests. Ulis' accuracy has seen its fair share of fluctuations, but he continues to power through any struggles by keeping his shot volume high. Factoring in Sunday's production, he's averaging 14.0 points, 8.0 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals across four April games.
Ulis posted 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 30 minutes during Friday's 122-103 loss to the Pelicans. While Friday's stat line wasn't as explosive as his past few games, Ulis performed admirably with the Suns backcourt crippled. Ulis' future is intriguing and it begs the question why the Suns felt like Elfrid Payton was a necessary addition when they already had talent like Ulis on their bench. Conventional wisdom says that there will be too many cooks in the kitchen for the Suns next year, and it's apparent that Ulis is too good for a bench role.
Ulis collected 13 points (4-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine assists, three rebounds and one steal across 36 minutes in Tuesday's 97-94 win over the Kings. Ulis continues to run with the first unit in the absence of Elfrid Payton (knee) and produce solid all-around lines. The 22-year-old now has seven straight double-digit scoring efforts, and he's dished out between eight and 12 assists in five of the last seven contests. Poor shooting has capped his scoring contributions over the last three contests as well, as he's shot 35.7 percent or worse during that stretch.
Ulis produced 12 points (5-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and two assists in 41 minutes during Sunday's 117-107 loss to Golden State. Ulis saw a huge amount of playing time Sunday, falling just one assist short of another double-double. After a season of basic irrelevance, he has turned things around over the past six games, seeing at least 30 minutes of playing time in five of those games. Elfrid Payton )knee) being out likely has something to do with that but Ulis was outplaying Payton even before he went down. Payton doesn't appear to be a part of the future plans for the Suns and so even when he does return, Ulis could hold onto the starting spot, maintaining his current value.
