Phoenix Suns’ Devin Booker recreates bubble pose in Game 2 vs. Mavs
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.
