Devin Booker exploded for 47 points and helped the Suns dominate the Lakers in Game 6 and win the first-round playoff series (4-2).

Booker went for a season-high 47 points in the contest (15/22 shooting, 8/10 from beyond the arc, 22 points in the opening quarter), leading the Suns past the Lakers at Staples Center (113-100).

This was the first playoff series win for Phoenix since 2010, whereas LeBron James suffered his first career loss in first-round playoff series (14-1).

The Lakers are now eliminated, whereas the Suns will face the Denver Nuggets in the second round.
