The Suns were in danger of losing to the Pelicans for the third time this month, but their All-Star shooting guard refused to let them finish on the wrong side of the scoreboard.
Devin Booker’s 58-point outburst on Saturday night sent the Footprint Center crowd into a frenzy and powered Phoenix to a 118-114 win. Booker was the driving force behind the Suns’ comeback, as he scored 36 of his 58 points in the second half to help Phoenix cut down a 24-point deficit.
Booker also reached 12,000 career points, becoming the sixth-youngest player in NBA history to hit that total (LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and Tracy McGrady).
