VIDEO: Devin Booker shines in return

We knew he would.

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Phoenix Suns Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Devin Booker returned to the Phoenix Suns lineup on Tuesday night and it was awesome.

The future of the Phoenix franchise is back after suffering a strained left adductor muscle on December 5th. He was out nine games, but in a 99-97 win over the Memphis Grizzlies at Talking Stick Resort Arena Booker looked like he hadn’t missed a beat.

Still he managed to avoid being the story of the night. That honor goes to Dragan Bender and Tyson Chandler. Be sure to check out the thrilling conclusion to last night’s contest. Here’s the highlights from Booker’s 32-point, 5-rebound, 6-assist night, 6-foul night. I like that he fouled out. I don’t know why.

Also he played 34 minutes, so that should be a relief to Suns fans. Will he be an All-Star this season? That remains to be seen. Use the hashtags #NBAVOTE and #BookEM to help Booker get to February’s showcase of the league’s best at the Staples Center. His campaign rolls on Friday when the Suns travel to Sacramento for a 7p PT tip.
