Devin Booker erupts in Portland for 34 points in 30 minutes

Devin Booker has some high standards to meet after having one of the best rookie seasons in Phoenix Suns franchise history, and he’s off to a good start.

The 19-year-old shooting guard didn’t even have to wait until the regular season to show that he’s back and better than ever.

Booker erupted for 34 points in 30 minutes in a 115-110 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers in preseason action.

Booker was fearless attacking the rim.

The most impressive aspect of Booker’s showing, however, was a tighter handle and attack from the midrange.

Booker’s 34-point performance comes off recently being named the starting shooting guard going forward over Brandon Knight at the start of the preseason. Booker ended the game on 15-of-23 shooting with three rebounds, five assists and three steals, not making an appearance in the fourth quarter.

Rookie power forward Marquese Chriss also impressed, putting on a display of high-powered dunks and moves in the post.

Chriss finished the game with 16 points and eight rebounds.
