Devin Booker once again made history for the Phoenix Suns after exploding in the first half of Wednesday’s matchup for 30 points.

Quickly in the third quarter, Booker became the first player in Suns’ history to record four consecutive games with 35 or more points.

After being named Western Conference Player of the Week last week, the Suns’ SG picked up right where he left off.

Phoenix currently holds a 12-point lead, which can be largely attributed to Booker’s lights-out shooting performance; he is currently shooting 13 of 18 from the floor.

Unfortunately, with a quarter and a half of play remaining, Booker has run into a bit of a foul issue (4) as the Suns look to defeat the Thunder without Kevin Durant.

But the major concern from tonight’s game against the Thunder was before the opening whistle even blew.

In what was supposed to be Durant’s debut for the Suns at the Footprint Center, KD was scratched from the starting lineup after slipping in warmups.

Stay tuned for more updates, as it is currently unclear how severe the injury is.
