Devin Booker erupts for 52 points as Suns beat Pelicans in key game

In a pivotal matchup, Devin Booker dropped 52 points to lead the Phoenix Suns (44-31) to a crucial 124-111 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans (45-30).

Booker’s explosive performance propelled the Suns within striking distance of the Pelicans for the No. 6 playoff spot in the Western Conference standings.

The Suns rebounded from a recent loss to Oklahoma City, closing the gap on the Pelicans ahead of their rematch in Phoenix.

Booker’s remarkable feat of scoring at least 50 points in three consecutive games against the same opponent solidifies his place in NBA history, joining the likes of Wilt Chamberlain.

Kevin Durant and Jusuf Nurkic provided valuable support for the Suns, contributing 20 points and 19 points with 19 rebounds, respectively.

Despite the Pelicans’ efforts, led by Zion Williamson’s 30 points, they couldn’t contain Booker’s offensive onslaught. Trey Murphy III added 21 points, while CJ McCollum contributed 15 points and nine assists.
