Monty: Booker could have got 50 points. It’s not just Paul’s fault
Booker’s 42 points set a new record. The referee ignored his six offenses, causing public anger
Booker played the worst game of this year’s playoffs in G3, with only 10 points and 20% shooting percentage, completely disappearing at the offensive end. Obviously, he was determined to get back to form, hit the middle distance steadily in the first leg of today’s opening game, and then broke through the throw to help the Suns play a 10-4 advantage.
Paul was on the defensive, and Booker’s timely scoring and fouls eased the pressure on the Suns, who scored 8 points in 3-for-7 in the first quarter.
In the second quarter, the two sides opened the offensive situation and began to fight against each other. In the second half of the quarter, Booker went on the court with a sudden shot and kept grabbing points. In the face of face blocking defense, he could also score elegant backward and take over the attack of the whole team, keeping the suns in the lead. Booker got 20 points in the first half and didn’t have any three points. It can be said that it’s rare.
In the second half, Booker continued the rhythm, scored in the middle distance and then broke through the Bucks’ defense. After 7 minutes and 38 seconds, Booker scored in the middle distance for two consecutive rounds, but the advantage of the Suns was not stable because of Paul’s inaccuracy.
