Hell yes!!!

I remember some cardinals fans crowing that the Cards future was brighter than the Suns during preseason. I wonder if they’re still sticking by that argument.

Book ALONE puts one above the other. Our owner doubles it. Everything else is just gravy compared the twisted, burning wreck known as the Cardinals.

7 game winning streak, two games without KD and Beal. And going on the road to get a nice W against a solid club.

Digging this a lot. Got another couple easy games coming up. Get those and keep the W train rolling.

Now KD gets another three days off before they need to reevaluate him.

So far these guys are road warriors, going 7-2 on the road.

Good win for shorthanded Suns. Just two games off pace for best record in the NBA. We keep crawling back to where we should be.

Our D and O schemes are getting better with each game. Goodwin played loose and confident offensively within a clearer structure. Yuta's 3pt touch also seems back. Metu proves to be playable. The rest for KD and Allen gave other bench players chances to get court time, with great results. Go Suns!

Eric Gordon helped Devin Booker carry the scoring load with 25 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and a block.

This bothered me. He had Brunson with his back to him. He just had to put his hands straight up.
They talked about this on the radio after the game. The plan was either foul him before he was in the active shooting or back away so the refs could not call a foul to either give him three shots or additional shot with the maid three-pointer.

Devin Booker's career six go ahead shots with 3 seconds or less left on the clock is impressive.

Booker is elite. This team will go as far as he can take them. He has the help so he doesn't need be Superman every night but it's become very clear since he returned this team has been tailor made for him.

One thing Monty deserves a lot of credit for also is helping Booker become a good defender. He was a traffic cone his first 2-3 years in the league and then he started exerting more effort but until Monty came on board, Devin wasn't even an average defender. Now he's hands down the best 2 way SG in the league. As long as he's defending someone between 6'4" and 6'7" he's good defensively. Every inch smaller or taller though he goes down, which is fine considering that's pretty average across the league and we have other personnel to handle those guys. Maybe Paul deserves some credit too, since he was always one of the best 2 way superstars in the league. We started seeing Booker getting noticeably better on D that first Monty season with Rubio though.

Frank Vogel says this is not the normal rotation for Devin Booker.
