Devin Booker led the Phoenix Suns to a victory over the LA Clippers after recording his first career triple-double. The Suns’ superstar has joined an elite company of players with 40-11-13 night in Game 1.
In particular, Booker became the sixth player in NBA history to record multiple 40-point games in his first career postseason, per ESPN Stats and Info.
He also became only the third 24-year-old or younger player to record a 40-point triple double, joining Luka Doncic and Oscar Robertson.
Booker will have to continue to excel vs. the Clippers with Chris Paul out indefinitely. The Suns are hosting LA again on Tuesday.
