For a while during the Suns and Nets game, it looked like the youngest starting line-up in NBA history was going to run away with the game. The young Suns started the first quarter on a 17-4 run and outscored the Nets 32-22 after one quarter. Then the Nets made a run in the 2nd and tied it up at 40 with about four minutes before the half. That’s when Devin Booker flexed his muscles after pump-faking and drawing an and-one foul on Jeremy Lin.
Lin only had 13 points but did get the last laugh (and one interesting celebration) as his Nets dominated the 2nd half — outscoring the Suns 32-15 in the third quarter and putting up 42 in the fourth! — and came away with a 126-98 win.
Booker had a game-high 28 points but continued to struggle from the field. He missed 17 of his 26 shots and is now 22 for his last 81.
