This is Booker’s second time winning this award this season and ninth in his career, which extends the Suns’ franchise record.

The Suns (26-20 overall) went 2-2 this week, while Booker posted averages of 42.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists with a 63.9% field-goal percentage and 50% 3-point percentage.

Booker most notably beat out a pool of players including Luka Doncic, who had the fourth-most points ever in an NBA game this week with 73. On this same night, Booker scored a season-high 62 points in a loss to the Indiana Pacers.

This is the second straight week a Suns’ player has won the award after Kevin Durant won it last week.

Either Booker and Durant have scored 40-plus points in six-straight games for Phoenix.

Booker will look to extend his personal three-game streak with 40 or more points tonight against the Miami Heat (24-22).
