The Lakers should be more ‘physical’ on Devin Booker in order to contain him, according to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Andre Drummond.

Booker had a game-high 34 points on Sunday, leading the Phoenix Suns to the 90-99 win in Game 1, and the Lakers don’t want this to happen again.

“I think it’s just Devin Booker being Devin Booker. We need to do a better job of being more physical with him,” Drummond noted, via Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope echoed that he needs to be more physical to get Booker out of his rhythm,” Lakers Nation reports.

Game 2 between the Lakers and the Suns is on Tuesday, with Phoenix leading the series 1-0.
