Devin Booker scored 32 points on 14-of-28 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds and one assist in Wednesday’s blowout loss.
Booker got hot in the scoring department and it’s good for him to take advantage of his minutes with Brandon Knight (available, zero minutes) still on the shelf. The Suns aren’t going to let Earl Watson stray too far from the game plan with Booker, which is to develop him for the rest of the year. The rookie needs a lot of minutes to accumulate the counting stats necessary for late-round value, but he should get there and if all goes well he might step into his learning curve aggressively for extra value.
