Slowly but surely, Tyler Ulis is making his presence felt in the NBA.

After rarely seeing the court for much of the season thus far, Ulis’ playing time has slowly increased in recent weeks, and he’ll only get more minutes after the game he just had vs Boston.

That included the game-winning three-pointer as time expired to life his Suns to a 109-106 win over the Celtics.

Ulis finished the game with a career-high 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting while dishing out five assists. He got a lot of help from fellow UK alum Eric Bledsoe, who chipped in 28 points, six boards and nine assists. That included the game-tying shot with four seconds left before Ulis stole the inbound pass from Isaiah Thomas and drilled the game-winner.

Devin Booker went for 16 points and five boards. Brandon Knight was a DNP coaches decision as his minutes are now going to Ulis, who has more than earned them.
