Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns has been one of the best guards in the NBA for a few years now.
But his recent output in this postseason is something above and beyond anything that’s come before for the guard.
According to StatMuse, Booker has the most points for any player with a 60% field goal percentage in this postseason.
He has landed 331 points, leading the rest of the league in a huge way.
In fact, second place on that list is Rudy Gobert of the Minnesota Timberwolves with 75 points.

So far in these playoffs, Booker has a 61.7% field goal percentage.
That’s a strong statistic and something that few other players have ever done in the postseason.
His latest stunning performance came on Sunday night when he scored 36 points and 12 assists.
Even though his teammate Kevin Durant also achieved 36 points, it was Booker who many people consider to be the most important member of the team.
He is playing with serious speed and efficiency and seems unstoppable at times.
The Denver Nuggets are having an awfully hard time slowing Booker down.
They will need to if they wish to win this series and move on to the Western Conference Finals.
For the season, Booker averaged 27.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 5.5 assists.
He is leaving those numbers in the dust during the playoffs with 36.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 7.4 assists per game.
If he can keep playing like this, not only do the Suns have a great chance of making the Finals but Booker might earn his first Finals MVP.NEXT: Suns Owner Makes An Announcement After Nikola Jokic Incident
