It’s been a roller coaster ride for Devin Booker and the Phoenix Suns, the favorites to win the second series against the Dallas Mavericks.
The Suns started the streak on a high note, winning Games 1 and 2 by solid margins. While some refer to them as the winners of the series, others are certain that it will end in a sweep. Game 3 told a different story as the Mavs got their first win of the series and continued to end the series in Game 4.
However, The Suns responded with a 30-point win in Game 5 and looked formidable. One more win and they’ll advance to the Western Conference Finals to see who wins between the Golden State Warriors and the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Mavs, on the other hand, won’t be empty handed in Game 6 as they are forced to take Game 7 by taking a 27-point win on Thursday.
Pressure is on the strongest team in the league to win the series and Nick Wright agrees. The analyst says that Booker and Chris Paul are under a lot of pressure for Game 7. He also thinks Luka Doncic is the best player in the series and he’s better than both of the Suns’ best players. Booker and Paul.
“Not only do the Mavs have the best player in the series, but the Mavs best player is better than the two best Suns players combined,” said Wright. “Devin Booker has the audacity, the unmatched courage to mock a player who is clearly superior.”
Can Devin Booker upgrade and secure the series for the Phoenix Suns?
Devin Booker has had a somewhat quiet playoff period compared to his usual performance of the season. The three-time All-Star star will appear in the knockout round.
His performance so far has been a disappointment to fans and pundits alike. He averaged 24.7 points per game, missing three appearances. His absence is due to a hamstring injury he picked up in Game 2 against the New Orleans Pelicans.
His best performance after this season was in Game 4 with the Mavs. He scored 35 points, four rebounds and seven assists.
However, that was not enough to help the Suns get a win, as the Mavs picked up 10 points at the end of the game. It’s not yet clear if Booker will step up and help his team win Game 7.
