This news is absolutely an invitation to discuss whether Devin Booker’s historic 70-point night in Boston last month is cheapened by the fact that the Phoenix Suns lost the game.
Boston won its March 24th game with Phoenix 130-120. Booker hit 21 of 40 shots including 4 of 11 from behind the arc. He chipped in eight rebounds and six assists. Phoenix celebrated the historic accomplishment. Jae Crowder was especially displeased.
If you count Pat Riley, which you shouldn’t, nine individuals with ties to the Suns have been inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Are there any current Suns who will be joining Connie Hawkins, Gail Goodrich, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, Gus Johnson, Dennis Johnson, Ann Meyers, and Jerry Colangelo?
They’ll get their next shot at building a resume to join that elite bunch tomorrow when the Suns host the Golden State Warriors. SET THE DVR.
