  • Booker scores 46 to lift Suns past 76ers 115-101

    Devin Booker was unguarded as he swished a 26-foot 3-pointer, and shrugged as he tossed up his hands. The Suns were surely impressed. Booker scored 46 points and outplayed a flu-ridden Ben Simmons in a battle of 21-year-old stars, and led the Phoenix Suns to a 115-101 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night.
