He did the pose. Again.

Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker on Wednesday night recreated that famous picture of him on the floor looking up after hitting a game-winner over the Los Angeles Clippers in the bubble in 2020.

With just under nine minutes to go in the opening quarter against the Dallas Mavericks in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals, Booker hit this deep fadeaway two while also getting fouled.

What followed next has been seen multiple times, as Booker stayed down on the floor in his classic pose.

Perhaps the biggest difference for Suns fans compared to the bubble version is the fact that Wednesday night’s edition came in a playoff game.

Booker finished the first half with nine points on 4-of-8 shooting to go along with two rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes played.

He closed the game with 30 to lead Phoenix to a 129-109 victory.

The Suns are up 2-0 in the series with Game 3 in Dallas.

Game 3 is set for Friday at 6:30 p.m. Catch the game on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
