Devin Booker would like to get in touch with the Phoenix Suns fan who went viral Friday for, first, getting in a fight with a pair of Denver Nuggets fans and, then, telling those fans “Suns in four.”

It is possible the Suns shooting guard wants to tell the man that it’s no good getting in fist-fights — though the Denver Police Department told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Monday that there were no arrests made in the incident.

“The party involved did not want to pursue charges,” a spokesperson said.

Perhaps Booker wants to ask how the man was so prophetic calling the series sweep during Game 3 on Friday.

Or maybe Booker was going to thank him for being such a believer in this Suns team.

“Need mans info,” Booker tweeted on Monday after Phoenix ended the Nuggets’ season with a 125-118 win in Game 4.

The Suns fan Booker was hoping to connect with went viral shortly after Game 3’s Suns win.

He was seen on video responding to a Denver fan attempting to punch him by grabbing the Nuggets fan’s jersey and landing several punches. Twitter user @cbj3000, who took a video of the fight, said the Nuggets fans were upset that the Phoenix man told them, “Suns in four,” adding that they dumped beer and exchanged words with the Suns fan before the punches were thrown.

As the Denver fans eventually attempted to leave, the Suns fan repeated himself — “Suns in four” — as cameras caught him closing the altercation with a prediction.

That prediction turned out to be correct. Phoenix advanced to the Western Conference Finals on Sunday with a victory at Ball Area.

Kroenke Sports, which owns the Nuggets, referred local Denver stations about the situation to the Denver Police Department.
