I wasn't sure where to put this but I'd rather put it here than the game thread.
Devin Booker wasn't the Devin Booker I know in Game 3.
I've been having trouble putting my finger on it but it's not about stats although they could be an indicator of something else.
I didn't see the fire in him I usually see.
I can't remember Devin being pulled from a game by a coach at least in recent memory because his performance was lacking. That's not Devin Booker. It's not only that, but it seemed Devin was sitting next to Monty for a reason.
Devin Booker is the ultimate competitor. I've never even seen that flame flicker once.
Hopefully it was just a bad game because the Devin Booker I know will bounce back and play with urgency in Game 4. There is no quit in him.
Could CP3 be getting to the team? Or is it just their “usual” 3rd game slump.
the team just seemed moody, on edge or irritated…I can’t quite describe their demeanor in game 3
