Devin Booker bounced back from a rare off performance in Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the team’s sloppy play in a 109-103 loss.
Booker scored 42 points after only scoring 10 in Game 3. He was one four Suns players to reach double digits on the night, the others being Jae Crowder with 15 and Cameron Johnson and Chris Paul each with 10.
The Suns turned the ball over 17 times compared to the Bucks’ five, tying the team’s worst mark in the playoffs.
Five of those came from the usually-solid Chris Paul, who has been averaging four per game in the Finals after 1.5 against the Los Angeles Lakers and 2 against the Denver Nuggets.
Points off turnovers and fast-break points hurt the Suns, with the Bucks winning that battle 39-5.
The loss ties the series up at two games apiece headed back to Phoenix on Saturday for Game 5.
Tipoff is at 6 pm and all the action can be heard on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Suns Station.
