It has evolved one step further after entering the playoffs. Now, he has become a player who cannot be defended.
Devin Booker is making history in this NBA Playoffs. In 9 games in the 1st and 2nd rounds, the cumulative score was 331 points, and the field goal success rate was a whopping 70%. This is the highest field goal success rate among players who scored at least 300 points in the first nine games in NBA playoff history.
Even Michael Jordan in 1990, who had a higher cumulative score in 9 games, had a field goal success rate that was not good for Booker. Booker’s tremendous scoring volume and phenomenal efficiency are a hot topic even in the United States.
In particular, he awakened from the 3rd game of the 2nd round of the playoffs, when the Phoenix Suns were driven to the Denver Nuggets with 0-2바카라사이트. The absence of starting point guard Chris Paul due to a left groin injury actually catalyzed the explosion.
In the last 3 and 4 games, a total of 83 points were raised, and the field goal success rate was 79.1%. There are also 21 assists in total.
In an interview right after Game 4, Booker explained the secret, “I just try to win. I always tell Kevin Durant. Efficiency is thrown out the window. I don’t care about that. I just think about attacking constantly.”
Denver’s defense was also taken aback by Booker’s quick and aggressive offense. This is Booker’s goal. “I didn’t have a lot of open shot opportunities,” he said. “I have to attack faster and aggressively so Denver can set up the defense and there is no time to double team.”
Due to Booker’s rapid growth, Durant, one of the league’s top scorers, became a second option. Durant also has a cumulative score of 75 in the last two games, not inferior to Booker.
Booker and Durant are the first two players in NBA history to record 35 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in two consecutive games, including the regular season and playoffs. American sports media ‘ESPN’ looked at Booker and Durant and called them “the best duo in the playoffs.”
“We’re still in the process of coming together. We’re thinking about how to keep both of us alive and help the team,” Durant said. “The key is for both me and Booker to get the ball and play aggressively. Me and Booker. We have the same thoughts. I feel that we are releasing attacks in the same way.”
