Devin Booker unleashes season-high 49 on Nuggets after ‘disrespectful’ introduction

DENVER — Devin Booker already had plenty of incentive to win Thursday night.

Then the introduction of the starting lineups added major fuel to his fire.

When Booker’s name was announced, Clippers guard Amir Coffey’s face was there instead of his with Booker’s first and last name displayed on Coffey’s picture on the scoreboard jumbotron at the top of Ball Arena.

Oh (expletive).

“That was disrespectful,” Booker said.

Booker proceeded to score 17 of his season-high 49 points in the first quarter in leading the Suns (60-14) to a 140-130 win that clinched the No. 1 overall seed in the playoffs.
