When Chris Paul joined the Phoenix Suns this past offseason he did not know what to expect from his new teammate Devin Booker. But, after playing with the 24-year-old guard, Paul admits he is impressed.

“There’s nothing that Book can’t do,” Paul said after the Suns defeated the Western Conference leaders the Utah Jazz. “He can go right, he can go left. He can create for others. He defends. He’s a two-way player.

“It’s been a lot of fun. I didn’t know what to expect when I came but I knew the mentality of the Book, right. This is fun. I’m excited about the things to come.”

This season, Booker is averaging 25.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game as the Suns turned from a playoff missing team last season to one of the top teams in the NBA this year.

Phoenix is currently in the second place in the Western Conference with 36 wins and 14 losses.
