Historically speaking, March is Devin Booker’s best month. Through 80 games in March of his seven-year career, Booker is averaging 27.1 PPG and 5.5 APG.
In March, the legendary 70-point night occurred in 2017, a back-to-back 50+ point performance happened in 2019, and last season, the Suns went on a 10-1 run with help from Booker’s average of 31 PPG.
A good visual of the type of month to expect from the three-time All Star.

And this repetitive notion of breakout performances during March is exactly what Phoenix needs.
With the Western Conference currently in a deadlock, the Suns are by no means safe at the #4 spot. A couple of losses in a row, and suddenly, Phoenix can drop all the way down to #11.
Luckily, they will have Kevin Durant making his much-anticipated debut to kick off the month against the Hornets. This will be the first time the Suns will have their full, new, and improved starting lineup.
Looking ahead, Phoenix is approaching a very difficult part of the season. First, the Suns will be on the road against the Mavs on March 5th, followed by a five-game homestand against the Thunder, Kings, Warriors, Bucs, and Magic.
Every game will have extreme playoff implications, and every second matters.
