The Phoenix Suns might be the most talented team in the NBA.
Despite being in fourth place in the Western Conference, their trade for Kevin Durant made them title contenders.
But, Durant has not played much since joining the Suns, as he has missed many games with different injuries.
So far Durant has only played in four games with Phoenix.
One player that has stepped up for the team all season is guard Devin Booker.
Brian Windhorst believes that Booker can be the Suns’ leading scorer in a playoff series.

One thing Booker has always done well is score the ball.
This season he is averaging a career-high 28.2 points per game.
For the Suns to reach the NBA Finals, they will need Booker to play great in the playoffs.
In last year’s playoffs, Booker only averaged 23.3 points per game.
Plus, the Suns collapsed in a Game 7 at home to the Dallas Mavericks.
This season Phoenix has all the star power you can hope for.
To go along with Booker and Durant, the Suns have Deandre Ayton and Chris Paul.
It is championship or bust for the Suns this season.
Currently, they are fully healthy, and the playoffs are right around the corner.
Where the Suns can run into trouble is that they do not have much depth.
If one of their stars was to get hurt, their championship odds would be slim.
Keep an eye on Booker, as his play will directly impact how far the Suns can go.NEXT: Shannon Sharpe Comments On Kevin Durant's Performance In Return
