A look at the two semifinal games Sunday in the Las Vegas Summer League:
TIMBERWOLVES 93, SUNS 83
Tyus Jones fought through an injured left wrist and thumb to lead Minnesota to the final of the tournament with 29 points, six assists and three rebounds. Jones had 18 points in the first half, but was injured when he landed hard on the court before halftime. The 2015 No. 24 pick came out of the break heavily bandaged, but continued to play as the Timberwolves outscored the Suns 24-18 in the third quarter to take a 67-66 lead. Jones' floater kicked off a 12-3 run to start the final quarter that effectively put things away.

Tyler Ulis was held to 11 points on 5-for-21 shooting after hitting the winner Saturday night.
No. 4 pick Dragan Bender and All-Rookie first-team Devin Booker did not play for the Suns.
BULLS 85, CAVALIERS 79
Denzel Valentine banked in a 3-pointer that started an 8-0 run to go to give Chicago an 80-75 lead with 1:14 remaining that the Cavaliers never recovered from. The 2016 No. 14 pick finished with 13 points, eight rebounds, three assists and two steals.
Cristiano Felicio led the Bulls with 18 points, and Bobby Portis added 16 points, nine rebounds and three assists. Chicago needed a 10-1 run in the third quarter to get back in the game after trailing 46-36 at halftime.
Kay Felder continued to impress with 22 points on 8-for-14 shooting as he pushes for a backup spot being Kyrie Irving. He did a little bit of everything throughout the game, including handing out five assists, but got out of control and missed a wild layup trailing 80-77 with 27.9 seconds remaining, forcing the Cavs to foul to extend the game. Jordan McRae was the only other Cavs player to reach double digits. He ended the night with 16 points and five rebounds, but shot 6 for 16 from the field.
