INDIANAPOLIS (WKYT) -- Only five players in the NBA can claim the following averages. 24.8 points and 6.9 assists per game. LeBron James, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard and Devin Booker. That’s some decent company for the former Kentucky Wildcat.
The fourth year pro is having his best season of his young career and Tuesday night after missing three games with back spasms, Devin got back to business with 8 points and 5 dimes in a loss to the Pacers.
"It feels good to loosen up a little bit," said Booker. "I just had to catch my rhythm and overall, it felt good to be back out there."
It’s been four years since Devin helped lead Kentucky to the Final Four in this very city and he said that he always enjoys the support from Big Blue Nation when he returns to Indiana.
"It is always great man. I always say when I come to Indiana, Big Blue Nation shows up and shows love," said Booker. "That is my extended family for life. I credit Kentucky and the fans for a lot my success."
