Having just been named Western Conference Player of the Week, Devin Booker is currently in the midst of one of the greatest shooting stretches of all time.

In the last four away games, Booker amassed over 200 points, an accomplishment unparalleled since 1975.

Moreover, in the past three games alone, D-Book achieved an impressive 150 points, a feat shared only by Damian Lillard, Kobe Bryant, James Harden, and Michael Jordan.

Despite the Phoenix Suns losing their previous two games, prompting some fans to speculate that Booker’s dominance in scoring might hinder the team’s overall offense, it is easy to dismiss this theory.

Of course, if Booker were shooting 40+ shots per game and making less than half, it would be easy to believe that he is hurting the Suns’ offense.

But, contrary to shooting excessively with a low success rate, Booker has maintained an outstanding efficiency, boasting a remarkable 66% shooting rate from the field. In the Suns’ recent three matchups, he delivered scoring performances of 46, 62, and 44 points.

Analyzing Booker’s plus/minus (+/-) over the past three games, it becomes evident that he is, in fact, elevating the Suns. He recorded a +33 in the Suns’ 23-point victory against Dallas, a +1 in their two-point loss to the Pacers, and a -4 in the Suns’ 15-point loss to the Magic.

Tonight, Devin Booker aims to continue his historic hot streak against the Miami Heat.
