Does scoring 45 points for the second best team in the league feel different than scoring that much for a struggling team?
“Yeah,” Devin Booker with a big, slow nod, after a moment to reflect. “Yeah it does.”
Booker had a season high 45 points for the Suns in their win over the Chicago Bulls for their 25th win in the last 31 games — one of the best stretches in franchise history.
Then on Friday, Booker scored 22 in the first half of a blowout win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in which the Suns had the very best quarter in franchise history with 30-point margin (43-13).
