The Phoenix Suns lost a tough one against the Philadelphia 76ers to start a four-game road stretch. They are now 7-3 on the season, tied for second in the Western Conference standings.
Devin Booker led the charge with 28 points but struggled to put the team on his back without his counterpart, Chris Paul. The Suns’ PG left the second quarter early with right heel soreness.
However, fans were still disappointed in the way Chris Paul performed before he left the game. Paul finished the first quarter with zero points.

Others were pretty upset with the way Devin Booker handled being down in the fourth.
Devin Booker had 28 going into the 4th and checked in with 8mins to go… he finished with 28😐

And lastly, there may be some overreactions..
Chris Paul, Deandre Ayton, and Mikal Bridges are not number 2s on a championship team, and it’s tough to see Booker as a clear number 1. Suns need star power, not better role players.
