Like he has done throughout his career, Booker proved that no stage was too big for him. With future Hall of Fame guard Chris Paul out due to COVID-19 protocols for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals in Phoenix, Booker more than made up for his absence.
Continuing with what has been a brilliant postseason performance this year, Devin Booker dropped 40 points on 15-of-29 shooting. He also grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out 11 assists in a virtuoso all-around performance from the 24-year-old guard. That included 18 points in the third quarter alone. It was something to behold.
