Devin Booker beats the buzzer to propel the Phoenix Suns to a 117-115 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday.
With the game tied at 115-all and just eight seconds remaining on the clock, Booker took matters to his own hands and fired the game-winning shot over the tough Clippers defense.
Even more amazingly, Devin Booker gave the Suns the lead 30 second earlier before the Clippers were able to tie the game. In the end though, Book and Phoenix wanted the win more.
Booker finished with 35 points, four rebounds and eight assists. He got help from Deandre Ayton, who compiled 19 markers, seven boards and four dimes.
Kawhi Leonard and Paul George combined for 50 points, but their efforts went for naught as the Suns fought until the end.
