Suns’ Devin Booker fist-bumps baby after hitting fadeaway at buzzer

Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker is a man of the people.

Even babies think he’s cool.

And in Tuesday night’s 125-114 loss in Game 2 of the first-round series against the New Orleans Pelicans at Footprint Center, Booker dapped up a Valley baby after hitting a fadeaway at the buzzer to end the first quarter.

Here’s another angle of the shot and the interaction between Booker and the lucky fan.

Despite the Suns trailing 30-28 after 12 minutes, Booker had a game-high 16 points on 60% shooting from the field.

The Phoenix guard also hit four of his six three-point attempts in the first quarter. He added one rebound and one assist.

Booker did, however, pick up two fouls in the opening quarter.

He finished the half with a game-high 31 points on 11-of-17 shooting (64.7%) and an astounding 7-for-10 from three, including this absurd shot from the logo to end the half.

But unfortunately for Booker, hamstring tightness brought his night to an early end in the third quarter.
