Devin Booker entered Tuesday averaging 26.2 points per game for the Suns, who are an impressive 3-0 down in Orlando, Florida. It would be a great story if Booker is able to lead the Suns to the 2020 NBA playoffs. The Phoenix franchise hasn’t seen playoff basketball since 2010 (back with franchise legend Steve Nash at the helm no less) and wasn’t given much of a chance by NBA pundits to compete well at Disney World.
The Suns’ next game is on Thursday against the Indiana Pacers in a matchup against former swingman TJ Warren, who was traded in a salary dump prior to the 2019 NBA Draft and has been playing spectacular basketball in the bubble. The Pacers-Suns game is another opportunity for Booker to continue his stellar 2019-20 statistical season and help Phoenix inch closer to that eighth seed out West.
Suddenly, it looks like there’s a slim chance Booker and the Suns could face LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the 2020 NBA playoffs, especially since the Memphis Grizzlies could head in more of a downward spiral after Tuesday’s injury news.
The current holder of the eighth seed, the Grizzlies lost big man Jaren Jackson Jr. to a knee injury for the remainder of the bubble games. That opens up a huge opportunity for Devin Booker and the Suns.
