Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker impressed the whole NBA world once again. After all, he chose the perfect time to drop his first career-triple double.

In Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals against the Los Angeles Clippers, Booker recorded 40 points, 13 rebounds and 111 assists to lead the Suns to a 120-114 victory. As mentioned, it’s the  first time in his career he achieved such  stat line, and he did so even in the absence of Chris Paul.

After such crazy display of scoring and all-around game, the likes of Kevin Love and DeMar DeRozan couldn’t help but show how amazed they were by the Suns star.

Orlando Magic swingman Terrence Ross also has some huge praise for Devin Booker, calling him “basketball Jesus.” Other players, meanwhile, were in awe of the midrange game of the  Suns scorer after he punished the Clippers with 18 points in the third quarter.

As if he has not done enough, Devin Booker certainly showed the world he is a legitimate superstar with the explosive showing. A lot of fans and experts expected the Suns to really struggle with their top playmaker out, but the young guard erased such notions as he went berserk all over the court.

Of course, his midrange game undoubtedly made the difference. However, it’s the fact that Book remained composed and steady throughout in his first trip to the West Finals that really stood out. Just how many young players can do that?

The Suns keep their homecourt advantage with the win, and the future doesn’t look good for the Clippers with the way Booker is playing.
