devin booker foul

NBA player Devin Armani Booker (October 30, 1996 – present) is an American professional basketball player who now plays for the Phoenix Suns of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Booker’s father, Melvin, was a former NBA player. Following his lone season in college at Kentucky, Booker was taken by the Phoenix Suns with the 13th overall choice in the 2015 NBA draught.

Career

On July 13, Booker signed a rookie deal with the Suns, and he averaged 15.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game in seven Summer League games thereafter. He played in the Suns’ season-opening game against the Dallas Mavericks two days before his 19th birthday, and it was his NBA debut. He had 14 points on 6-of-7 shooting in 21 minutes of play against the Mavericks, but they lost 111–95.

“Our opinion was that he had a lot of promise. At 6’2″, he was a standout in terms of physical stature and shooting skill. Having a lot of talent around you, as Devin was at Kentucky, may either help you hide your weaknesses or let others see them, depending on the situation. In Devin’s situation, I believe it was the complete reverse of that.”

While playing against the Sacramento Kings on January 2, 2016, Booker recorded a season-high 21 points. After making six three-pointers in a defeat to the Indiana Pacers on January 19, he established the rookie record for most points scored by a Suns player with 32. At the age of 19 years, 81 days, Booker is the third-youngest player in NBA history to score 30 or more points in a game, behind only LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Booker represented the United States in the Rising Stars Challenge in 2016. As a rookie, he participated in the NBA All-Star Weekend’s Three-Point Contest, making him the youngest participant ever to take part in the 30-year-old event, joining Stephen Curry (2010), Kyle Korver (2004), and Dennis Scott (1991). Finals day saw him finish third behind the “Splash Brothers,” Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson (winner).

Devin Booker’s Foul

 

When Devin Booker returned to the Footprint Center for the first time since Game 2 of the first round of the playoffs on April 19, it was a welcome sight.

First-quarter heroics against the Dallas Mavericks earned him 13 points and one technical foul as the Portland Trail Blazers beat them 121-114 in Game 1 of the Western Conference semi-finals.

One of Dallas Mavericks player Jalen Brunson’s shots was rebounded by Booker, and Booker followed it up with some colorful words, earning him a technical foul in the quarter.

Booker scored seven of the next 11 points for the Suns, despite the presence of the tech.

The All-Star made 4 of 8 shots from the field, including 1 of 3 from beyond the arc, and all 4 of his free throw attempts.

Besides the block, he had six boards, four assists, and a steal in the scuffle.

It was only seven minutes in the second quarter but Booker had 15 points, 6 boards, and 5 assists, making him one of the best players in the game.

Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks will be broadcast live on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.
