The Suns can smell the NBA Finals. However, Devin Booker may not be able to do it.
DeAndre Ayton scored 2-0 in the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday night to make the Suns dunk at the last second, but the biggest blow of the game was passed to Suns guard Devin Booker.
In the third quarter, Booker withdrew after an accidental head collision with Patrick Beverley. The blow caused Booker to fall to the ground immediately, causing his nose to bleed, but he later came back and used a key option to help Ayton dunk the ball for the last time. That is guts.
Booker will sew two stitches on his nose, the scene after the game…not suitable for people with a bad stomach.
Booker’s nose swelled to about the size of a grapefruit on steroids. The Suns superstar said he was planning a scan, which appeared to be a broken nose.
Booker ended the game with 20 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds in the second game, pushing the scorching Suns into another game for their third time in the NBA Finals.
NBA Twitter united and cracked some jokes on Booker’s nose after the game.
Devin Booker has a few stitches on his nose and he is still fine
