VIDEO: Suns’ Devin Booker gets surprise water shower after game-winner vs. Clippers
Phoenix Suns superstar Devin Booker’s jumper has always been described as “wet”. On Tuesday, he found himself literally drenched following his amazing game-winner against the powerhouse Los Angeles Clippers.
Booker finished with a game-best 35 points on 13-for-29 shooting from the field and 6-of-9 from downtown, to go along with four rebounds and eight assists to lead his team to a 117-115 win.
After fielding interviews from the press following his impressive performance, Devin Booker was the last player to check-in inside the Phoenix locker room. The 23-year-old deadshot found himself ambushed by his exhilarated teammates, who emptied water bottles at his head in celebration.

The Suns, meanwhile, are rightfully in a celebratory mood after coming out victorious in their second consecutive nail-biter. The Monty Williams-coached squad also won in a similar fashion (and identical score, 117-115) against the Dallas Mavericks on Monday with Booker also balling out on that contest.
Phoenix (29-39) has won its first two games inside the bubble and remains in contention for that 8th and final playoff spot in the West. They are currently ranked 12th in the standings and must finish with a better record than the Grizzlies, Blazers, Spurs, and the Pelicans.
