Whatever is being built in Phoenix, Devin Booker is at the heart of it.
The Suns’ second-year shooting guard was the guy with the ball in his hands with the game tied 98-98 and the clock running down. Booker was given the ball and space out top, the Mavericks put a good defender in Wesley Matthews on him, but Booker drove, spun, then hit the jumper from the top of the key as time expired. Ballgame.
Booker is going to be a good player for a long time. We’ll see if the Suns put a good team around him.
