1. Devin Booker

Aside from Durant, the only star that most fans are relying on is Devin Booker. However, he wasn't his usual self in Game 1, as he finished with 18 points and five assists. While Booker was aggressive in trying to make shots fall, he wasn't having his night. The Suns' star shot 5 for 16 from the field and logged a -15 in the box +/-.

Booker's shot creation is crucial in the Suns' bid to even the series against the Wolves. The team can't rely solely on the production that Durant has. Having another offensive option will make the Wolves play hard on defense and could keep Phoenix's offense unpredictable. 

The series between the two Western Conference teams is not only a battle of which team is better. It's a clash on which shooting guard is better, Edwards or Booker. After Game 1, Ant-Man announced his presence while the former Kentucky guard was silent.

"I think this is the matchup that I wanted personally because they got two of the best 2-guards in the NBA. Book been the best 2-guard in the league for a minute."
