That’s about as hot as a player can get for one quarter.
Phoenix’s Devin Booker went off for 27 points in the second quarter against Milwaukee, hitting nine-of-11 from the field (and his two misses were at the rim). His shooting almost single-handedly made this close — the Suns were down 20 after one quarter but were within eight at the half. Booker was impressive.
It wasn’t enough as the Suns’ defenders could have been replaced by orange traffic cones most of the night, the Bucks put up 137 points in going on to win by 25.
