They say there is no “I” in “team”, but there is in “Devin”. And Devin Booker was all the Suns needed early Wednesday night.

Booker scored 21 quick points in the first quarter of Phoenix’s game against Utah, single-handedly outscoring the entire Jazz team. The Suns won the first quarter 39-18.

Booker started the game at a steady pace, helping Phoenix to an early double-digit lead. He really warmed up in the second half of the quarter, although starting at 6:20 he scored 17 of the Suns’ 24 points to close the period.

It was the second most points in a first quarter for Booker. He scored 22 goals in the first quarter of Game 6 of last year’s first-round playoff series against the Lakers before eventually leading the Suns to a berth in the NBA Finals.

It’s far too early to tell if Phoenix will make it back to the Finals this season, but Booker and his teammates are giving the Suns the play they deserve. The Suns came in on Wednesday atop the entire NBA at 37-9, three games ahead of the second-placed Warriors.

Booker entered the game leading the team in scoring 24.5 points per game. He is also second in assists (4.4) and fifth in rebounds (5.4).
