Devin Booker followed up his 38-point explosion against the Pelicans on November 3 with a huge game versus the Los Angeles Lakers, dropping 39 points and seven assists. Unfortunately, his heroics were not enough to carry the Suns as they fell to the Lakers, 108-119. His shooting was noteworthy, going 13-of-29 from the field and an impeccable 10-for-10 from the line.
Devin Booker was scouted as a breakout candidate in fantasy basketball this season, and it has been so far so good, as far as him building up a resume that’s living up to the hype. His emergence this season is akin to what C.J. McCollum did for his owners in 2015-16. Booker is in line for some big lines this season, so owners are going to enjoy one hell of a ride.
