Video: Devin Booker drops career-high 38 points vs. Pelicans

Devin Booker

If you’re not part of the Devin Booker bandwagon, beware… it’s almost full.

The 20-year-old had a much-awaited explosive outing, carving up the New Orleans Pelicans for a career-high 38 points in spectacular fashion en route to a 112-111 overtime win.

The Phoenix Suns shooting guard had it going on late, when it mattered most, hitting two clutch shots to help send the game to overtime. As the team announcer said — book it!

This play here showed that the NBA stage is not too big for the young second-year player out of Kentucky, as he drained this corner two as time expired to knot the game at 102 and force overtime.

The Grand Rapids native wasn’t done, because when you’re hot, everything drops — as evidenced by this jumper that falls into the hoop from the top of the backboard. Unreal. He’d make the free-throw to complete the and-one play.

Booker eventually fouled out with eight seconds left in the game, leaving it up to T.J. Warren to score the game-winning bucket off an inbound pass for the dunk.

Devin Booker finished the night with 38 points, shooting 13-of-22 from the field, 3-of-7 from three, and a perfect 9-of-9 from the free-throw line — bringing up his average to 19.8 points per game for the season.
