Devin Booker of the Suns scores 52 points against the Pelicans, ties remarkable Wilt Chamberlain record

Unprecedented: Devin Booker Sets New Career High in Scoring and Propels Phoenix Suns Toward Playoff Berth

Devin Booker is leading the charge for the Phoenix Suns as they strive to secure a spot in the playoffs. In their recent game against the New Orleans Pelicans, Booker scored an impressive 52 points, setting a new career-high in three-pointers with eight. He was on fire, with 37 of those points coming in the first half. This was the third consecutive game in which Booker scored at least 50 points against the Pelicans, making him only the second player in NBA history to achieve this feat alongside Wilt Chamberlain.

Booker’s outstanding performance not only helped the Suns secure a crucial win but also allowed them to make up ground in the standings. They are now just one game behind the sixth-place Pelicans with 14 games left to play. The Suns will face off against the Pelicans once again on April 7, giving them another opportunity to gain ground in the standings.

In addition to benefiting the Suns, Booker’s stellar performance also had implications for the Minnesota Timberwolves. All they needed was a Pelicans loss to clinch a top-six playoff spot, and thanks to Booker’s efforts, that’s exactly what happened. The Timberwolves will show their appreciation to Booker when they visit Phoenix to play the Suns on Friday.
