Booker, Suns look to stay hot vs. Lakers

The performance of All-Star guard Devin Booker is a major reason the Phoenix Suns are among the top clubs in the Western Conference. Booker and the Suns will visit the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday in a clash of two top teams in the Western Conference.

Booker scored a season-high 43 points in the Suns' 118-99 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday. He scored 21 points in the third quarter alone, allowing the Suns to take command with a 21-3 surge late in the third and early fourth quarters. Phoenix rolled to its fifth victory in six games and 14th in the past 17.

Booker converted 15 of 26 shots overall, although he made just one of them from 3-point land, with 12 of 13 free throws. His recent outstanding play provided NBA Commissioner Adam Silver with an easy decision to add Booker to his first All-Star squad and replace injured Lakers star Anthony Davis last week.
