Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker has continued his exceptional form in the bubble as he dropped 35 points on the Oklahoma City Thunder to led his team to a 128-101 win. Booker has been absolutely great since the NBA season restarted in Orlando and now he has tied his own franchise for most 35-point games in a single season.
Booker, who has had 15 35-point games this season, has been averaging 26.5 points per game this season. The Suns clinched their sixth win in the bubble after beating the Thunder and they remain the only undefeated team at the Walt Disney World in Orlando.
The Suns sit on the 10th place of the Western Conference with a 32-39 record with two games left to play and they still have a shot at making the playoffs. "It's been fun," Booker said after th win, as quoted on ESPN.
"We've been playing really good basketball. We've been having fun on and off the court with each other. We're becoming closer. We're learning each other. And we're communicating with each other. "So, we're taking it one game at a time.
That's been our mindset since we got here and we're sticking with that. So, it's been a competitive environment, a focused environment since we got down here. So we're trying to maintain that, keep that going and finish this thing out strong."
Booker not surprised by Suns' run
"I wouldn't say it's a surprise," Booker said of his team being the only undefeated in Orlando. "From the moment we got down here, it's been high energy and competitive.
I don't know if we're going to win or lose, but I know we have some guys in this locker room that aren't going to back down from any matchup or any competition." Suns coach Monty Williams is happy with the way the team has been playing but he now wants them to focus on the remaining two games and clinch wins.
"We haven't accomplished anything," Williams said after the Thunder win. "It may sound like coach speak, but we dug ourselves a hole with our record. ... We're here and we're thankful for that. But we haven't accomplished anything as far as the main goal.
Everybody is trying to get to the playoffs and we've just said we're going to take it one step at a time."
