Devin Booker Earns Wilt Chamberlain Comparisons as Phoenix Suns Fight for Playoff Spot with Impressive 52-Point Performance against New Orleans Pelicans

Devin Booker is playing a crucial role in the Phoenix Suns’ efforts to avoid the Play-In Tournament. In a recent game against the New Orleans Pelicans, Booker scored an impressive 52 points, leading the Suns to a 124-111 victory. He shot 19 of 28 from the field, dished out nine assists, and grabbed three rebounds. Additionally, Booker set a new career-high with eight three-pointers, 37 of his 52 points coming in the first half.

Booker’s consistent high-scoring performances against the same opponent have earned him comparisons to NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain. He previously scored 52 points against the Pelicans earlier in the season and even dropped 58 points on them back in 2022. The Suns are now just one game behind the Pelicans for the sixth spot in the standings with 14 games left to play, and they are well-positioned to continue their push for playoff positioning.

Not only did Booker’s incredible display of skill help the Suns close the gap in the standings, but it also aided Minnesota Timberwolves in their quest for a top-six playoff spot. The Timberwolves needed the Pelicans to lose, and Booker’s 52-point game helped them achieve that goal. When they face off against each other next time, Timberwolves fans can thank him personally for his efforts.

Overall, Booker is proving to be an integral part of this Suns team as they work towards securing a playoff spot. With each passing game, he continues to make strides towards making sure that they avoid missing out on postseason action altogether.
