During Week 5, Booker’s stellar performance included averaging 30.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 7.8 assists per game, resulting in an impressive 4-0 stretch for the Suns.

This season, the Suns boast an 8-1 record with Booker on the court, with their sole loss against the 3-14 Spurs.

Conversely, in Booker’s absence, the team has struggled, recording a 3-5 record, underscoring his pivotal role in their success.

Nevertheless, after being named Western Conference Player of the Week, Devin Booker remained humble, crediting it as a “team award.”

Booker explained, “I’d say more importantly, we talked about this morning; it’s a team award. You know, I’ve had much better weeks, been 1-2, 0-3 in the past, and never won it. So, you know, it takes a group to do it all.”

If Booker were to stay on the pace that he is on so far this season, he would break a career high in points per game, assists per game, rebounds per game, FG%, blocks per game, and FT%.

So, just about every single category
