Booker has now moved into 5th all-time in Suns points with 12,061 for his career. He trails Suns legends, Walter Davis, Alvan Adams, Kevin Johnson, and Shawn Marion.
After the game, Booker talked about his 32-point performance and how his road to recovery was a huge testament to having a game like he did tonight.
“I feel good. It was a long recovery road and you know something I found peace in and you know just enjoyed the whole process of after the first week it was kind of like I’m here now let’s get the most out of it. So a lot of strength training a lot of leg work and you know tonight I feel good.”
