The Phoenix Suns have one of the hottest scorers in the league right now, and we’re not talking about Kevin Durant.
Devin Booker has been on a tear over the past couple of games, and he single-handedly orchestrated a comeback to close out the Los Angeles Clippers in just five games.
Booker showcased his entire offensive repertoire with a majestic 25-point third quarter, finishing the night with 47 on 19/27 from the floor.
That’s why former NBA player Tim Legler believes he’s just on a whole different level right now.
"Devin Booker's on another planet. … This guy's been putting up numbers since the day he got in the league. I've never seen him like this."

Legler raved about how hungry Booker is and how much he’s making the most of every single touch he has now that he’s gotten more space to operate with Durant by his side.
Of course, Durant is one of the greatest scorers this game has ever seen, so his sole presence will open up so much space and takes off plenty of pressure for Booker to do his thing by his side.
Booker has always been an efficient volume scorer from all three levels, and he’s gotten the best looks of his career now.
The Suns have a duo that could combine and go off for 60+ any given night, which is more than most teams in the league can brag about right now.
And as much as the media and the fans want to make it all about Durant, the Suns have been Booker’s team for years now, and not even his presence is going to change that any time soon.NEXT: Former NBA Player Is Making History In Taiwan
