Devin Booker posted 23 points, four rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers during the Suns’ road loss to the Hornets on Sunday.
Booker also played 35 minutes and hit all seven of his free throw attempts. The Suns are all-in on their youth movement and Booker has clearly proven that this is his team, so expect the big lines to keep coming. The kid has been outstanding as of late, fresh off a 70 point game, Booker came back and scored 23 but also helped you out in other categories. His shallow stat set was always his biggest source of criticism – he’s been downplayed by the thought that he can only score and wasn’t very useful in 9-cat leagues. He’s definitely proving the doubters wrong of late, and over the last week he’s a top-40 player. The Suns have an upcoming four game slate next week so keep him locked in all your lineups.
