Angry, Devin Booker Drops a Controversial Allegation After Game 4!

Phoenix blew their lead in the conference semifinals against Dallas, and Devin Booker was frustrated after the latest loss. In fact, the Arizona star made somewhat conspiratorial comments, implying the Texans were entitled to a boost …

Decidedly, tonight in Game 4 was completely forgettable for the Suns. In addition to having to attend to the serious incident surrounding Chris Paul’s family, Monty Williams’ men suffered a second straight loss on the Mavs’ court (111-101). The first quarter significantly weighed down the Cactus, which was already 12 points behind after as many minutes (37-25) of the teammates. Luka Doncić.

As a result, the series is now at two everywhere between them, an infuriating observation for the Arizona men as they had done their job admirably in winning the first two meetings. The current scenario must also bring back bad memories, as it resembles in every way the last NBA Finals that saw them lose to the Bucks. Milwaukee also fell 2-0 before winning the title…

Devin Booker lashes out at referees after loss

Unsurprisingly, frustration is building in the Phoenix locker room, and Devin Booker exemplified it quite well in the postgame press conference. Precisely, the star defender of the franchise, author of 35 points in the match, half deplored the management of fouls by the referees during the 48 minutes. Risking a heavy fine, he played with words so as not to get caught, but the words were very clear:

I’ve been to 500 games or something and I haven’t really seen one like today…

The shooting guard is probably referring to the six fouls called against Chris Paul, as well as the four he suffered himself. In total, the Cactus finished the game with 25 fouls on the clock, against 21 for Dallas. So the difference isn’t huge, but it’s the way they were called that really annoys D-Book. He also allowed himself one additional entry into the league, explaining that he didn’t know what he could or couldn’t say about the referees:

I do not know too. That’s what I do not understand. I don’t want to be fined $25,000. It’s a good way to scare you. Am I being cheated? I can’t take the bait for this question, but… check out the last two games again and let me know what you think. That’s the best I can tell you.

Devin Booker had a hard time after the loss of his team, but his statement about the referees unfortunately will not improve the situation of the Suns. On the other hand, he could well be sanctioned by the NBA after his speech…
