Booker Keeps Suns Scorching, Giannis Leads Bucks’ Big 3 Past Lakers

Jonathan Grant | November 18th, 2021

If you didn’t already know this you should: Devin Booker is really, really good. And so, too, are the Phoenix Suns. They’ve flown a little under the radar, somehow yet again, in 2021 thus far, but Wednesday night’s 105-98 victory over the Dallas Mavericks was their tenth consecutive win and it brought them to an 11-3 record thus far. Pretty impressive considering they had made a 1-3 start, isn’t it? Booker was tremendous in this outing, scoring 24 points (none of which came from free throws), and it was his three-pointer that beat the shot clock with under a minute left that iced the game for good.

Deandre added 19 and had ten rebounds in an old-school, fairly low-scoring affair that featured plenty of tough shots and bad shooting. Elsewhere, the Milwaukee Bucks, the defending NBA champs, got their ‘big three’ back together for just the third time this season as they took down the Los Angeles Lakers at home by a score of 109-102. LeBron James didn’t feature for the visitors, but even if he had it would’ve been a tough one as Giannis exploded for 47 points. Khris Middleton came back after eight games out and added a respectable 16 immediately, helping them pull their record to 7-8 at this early stage. The Lakers are just 8-8, with only one win out of four on the road.
