The Phoenix Suns are determined to make it to the playoffs, and Devin Booker is leading the charge. In a recent game against the New Orleans Pelicans, Booker scored an incredible 52 points, breaking his career-high in three-pointers with eight. He was on fire, scoring 37 of those points in the first half alone. This marked the third consecutive game in which Booker scored at least 50 points against the Pelicans, tying him with Wilt Chamberlain as the only player in NBA history to achieve this feat.

Booker’s outstanding performance not only helped the Suns secure a crucial win but also allowed them to close the gap between them and the sixth-place Pelicans. With just 14 games left to play, the Suns are now only one game behind their rivals. The two teams will face off again on April 7th, giving the Suns another opportunity to gain ground in the standings.

The Timberwolves also had something to celebrate after Booker’s stellar performance. All they needed was a Pelicans loss to clinch a top-six playoff spot, and Booker delivered. The Timberwolves will show their appreciation for their star guard when they visit Phoenix on Friday for a highly anticipated matchup between these two Western Conference rivals.
