The Golden State Warriors, this year’s title favorites, visited the Phoenix Suns, this season’s worst team, in a game that saw the defending champions improve to 58-23 and the home team dropping to 20-61.
As expected the final score was lopsided in favor of the Warriors, 117-110. Klay Thompson sizzled early and finished the night with 34 points on 14-of-23 shooting from the field. He got the usual amount of support coming from the likes of Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and Quinn Cook.
While the game was all about the Warriors, the Suns also had one shining moment courtesy of point guard Tyler Ulis. In one play, Ulis tries to dial in a pass to center Alex Len as the latter secures a good position underneath.
Covering Ulis was the lengthy JaVale McGee and all of his seven-foot frame. No way Ulis can toss a pass toward Len, but the crafty guard found a huge opening in McGee’s coverage. Watch the clip below:

Again, not much was to be celebrated on the Suns’ part during this game. But this sly assist by Ulis has the potential to make the rounds on social media and even find itself on Shaqtin’ A Fool.
Ulis had himself a solid outing with 15 points and 10 assists while McGee was also productive by scoring 11 points.
