Devin Booker's Playoff Scoring Run
Devin Booker just tied up the series 2-2 with another great performance, where he not Durant showed up and out. Booker & the Suns were embarrassed by the Mavericks last season after being blown out by 40+ points at home in game 7. It was so embarrassing that the Suns had to put out an apology for the performance.
It was clear that Booker did not want or need another apology letter coming out after these playoffs. In four games going against the #1 seed Nuggets with 2021 & 2022 NBA MVP, Booker has been unstoppable on the court.
Devin Booker this series:
36 PTS | 6 REB | 12 AST
47 PTS | 6 REB | 9 AST
35 PTS | 5 REB | 6 AST
27 PTS | 4 REB | 8 AST
Shooting over 60/50/90% splits
Devin Booker's shooting splits resemble those of a Clint Capella center, it is unheard of a shooting guard to average 36 on 60% shooting from the field. Not only that but he is leading all playoff players in; points, points per game, FG%, and 3P% (minimum 100 attempts).
Over the last month, Booker's Prizm base and silver market has seen nice gains. Murray, Booker, Rui, and Butler have shown playoff play exceeding expectation can equate to an uptick in market value.
