If you haven’t been paying much attention to the NBA since the All-Star break, you’ve missed two former Kentucky Wildcats putting on a show night in and night out. We’ve mentioned on KSR how incredible Anthony Davis has been in the month of February, but on top of his performances, Devin Booker has been a walking bucket, despite the Phoenix Suns’ struggles in the win-loss column.

Since the All-Star break, Booker has scored 30+ in three of the four games, and he had 27 in the fourth game. He’s averaging 32.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists, while hitting 32 of his 37 attempted free throws. If Booker was on a playoff caliber team, he would be talked about as one of the best scorers in the league.
