Devin Booker scored 22 points (7-for-26 FGs, 1-for-5 from deep) with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and two turnovers in 38 minutes on Friday. Book had been on fire the past two games before struggling with his shot in this one. He still managed 22 points since he was 7-for-7 on free throws. He’ll be fine moving forward, but he has averaged 31.1 points in seven games playing in Boston, so his performance was a little underwhelming. He’s also had two steals in four of his past five games, which is a nice defensive boost considering he’s averaged 0.8 steals per game in his career.
