Suns star Devin Booker’s perfect reaction on nose injury from Patrick Beverley headbutt

Suns, Devin Booker, Patrick Beverley, Clippers

Devin Booker’s nose still hurts after it was headbutted by Patrick Beverley. Fortunately, getting the W with the Phoenix Suns eases the pain of it somehow.

In a response that will probably make Beverley and the Los Angeles Clippers cry, Booker admitted that winning is just the best medicine for his bleeding nose.

“It feels better now. If it was a loss, I think it would hurt a little bit more. It’s good. Just get some scans and get a mask ready,” Booker said of his nose injury, per Michael Scotto of Hoops Hype.

To recall, late in the third quarter of the Suns-Clippers Game 2 in the Western Conference Finals, Devin Booker accidentally bumped heads with Patrick Beverley. The young scorer was bleeding a lot and had to be rushed to the locker room.

Fortunately, Booker was fine after getting treatment and was able to return to the floor. While he struggled mightily throughout the contest and shot 5-of-16 with Beverley as his main defender, he was crucial for Phoenix in their clutch play with less than one second left. D-Book set the perfect screen to free up Deandre Ayton from Ivica Zubac, allowing the Suns center to throw down the epic game-winning dunk.

Booker looked like he was coming off a boxing match after Game 2, but hey, a win is a win no matter how you look after everything. Hopefully, Kendall Jenner won’t mind his boyfriend having an swollen nose for some time.
