Devin Booker scores 31 for Suns victory

TThe summer league games are one of the greatest showcases for fresh faces trying to build a name. It’s great to see the rookies come out and show why they were drafted as well. Devin Booker did just that – and them some. This was a big game because the Pelicans had Seth Curry – who has been a big contender all summer long. Booker came out strong though – scoring 31 points to take the Suns to the championship game tomorrow night. Make sure to look out for Devin during the season!! Excited to watch his career grow.
