Phoenix Suns Stud vs Portland Trail Blazers: Devin Booker

All eyes found their way to Devin Booker during this contest as he made his triumphant return. He made sure to entertain them all, finishing with a team high 17 points.

However, the way in which Booker got his points struck as more impressive than the points themselves. Shooting a crisp 6-10 from the field, Booker led all starters from an efficiency standpoint.

He also went 3-5 from 3-point range, showing improvement with something he struggled mightily with last year. If Booker continues to shoot like this from deep, then he might challenge for this coming year’s MVP award, which makes this an encouraging sign for both him and the Suns.

In between all that, he dished out an assist, grabbed three rebounds, and a steal. He accomplished all this during just 18 minutes, also moving well to show zero signs of rust.

Needless to say, Booker looks ready for the regular season to begin, even with his delayed start to training camp.
