After a 10-year break the Phoenix Suns returned to the NBA playoffs last season and instantly went all the way to the Finals where they lost to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Phoenix continues its last year’s success and is currently the top team in the Western Conference with 35 wins and 9 losses. According to the team’s star Devin Booker, the experience gained the previous season is playing a major role in that.

“We all trust each other. We had a lot of learning curves last year, but having that time and that experience together, I know put us in a situation where we never hit the panic button,” Booker said after the Suns’ win over the Mavericks.

This season Booker is averaging 24.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game for Phoenix.
