When healthy, the deadly combo of Devin Booker and Kevin Durant is nearly unbeatable during the regular season.
Unfortunately, without any outside help, as no other player on the Suns scored more than 16 points, it was the first loss that the duo suffered while on the court together.
Nevertheless, it can be easily argued that the Suns have the best 1-2 punch in the league.
With Kevin Durant, at 35 years old, sitting 2nd in the NBA with an average of 31.4 points per game this season, and Devin Booker right behind him at 28.8 PPG, if one teammate is struggling, the other one is there to pick them up.
Already, in just 25 games played together (including playoffs), Kevin Durant and Devin Booker have each scored 30 points or more six times as teammates.
Kevin Durant and Devin Booker have scored 30 points in the same game 6 times as teammates (reg. season & playoffs).
That's tied with Steve Nash and Amar'e Stoudemire for 3rd-most by a duo in Suns history.
