Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker has been named to the KIA NBA All-Seeding Games First Team, the team announced on Saturday.

Head Coach Monty Williams was also named the Kia NBA Coach of the Seeding Games.

Booker, who was also a Kia NBA Player of the Seeding Games candidate, led the Suns to a perfect 8-0 record in the bubble.

But unfortunately for Suns fans, Phoenix didn’t get the help it needed from other teams in order to finish in one of the two play-in spots for the Western Conference playoffs.

In eight games in Orlando, Booker averaged 30.5 points, 6.0 assists and 4.9 rebounds in 33.8 minutes per game.

The 23-year-old also shot 50.3% from the field, 31.3% (15 of 48) from deep and an astounding 94% (63 of 67) from the charity stripe.

Booker’s stats weren’t the only numbers to impress during the seeding portion of the bubble.

Over the course of those eight games, the Suns finished first in the league in assist-to-turnover ratio; second in offensive rating, rebounding and true shooting percentage; third in assists and fourth in defensive rating.

Others to be named to the All-Seeding Games First Team include: Luka Doncic, Damian Lillard (who won the Player of the Seeding Games), James Harden and T.J. Warren.
