Devin Booker erupted in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals and led the Phoenix Suns to the 1-0 lead over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Booker went for an impressive triple double with 40 points (15/29 shooting), 13 rebounds and 11 assists, as the Suns survived a late thriller vs the Clippers (114-120).

It was a hard-fought battle between the two teams, but Booker made some clutch shots in crunch time and sealed the deal for the winners. This was Devin Booker’s first career triple-double and the first one or a Suns player in the playoffs since 2005 (Steve Nash).

Booker and the Suns will host the Clippers on Tuesday in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.
