Suddenly, the Phoenix Suns are riding a three-game winning streak. And they brought the heat with them after a big-time victory at Madison Square Garden on Monday over the Knicks. The game would ultimately end with a scoreline of 128-110. Losing is bad enough, but losing to a six-win team? That’s brutal. And it would get even worse for the Knicks, with Devin Booker trolling Enes Kanter after New York’s center threw the first shot.

However, you could argue that Kanter still won the personal exchange. After all, he did hold Booker to a minus-4 over 28 minutes. But overall, the Knicks were powerless to stop the Suns from scoring all night long. That includes Booker’s 38 points.
Will Kanter respond to this latest development? We’ll find out either before or after March 6 when the two teams play again. Hopefully his trolling in 2019 will be even greater. Sometimes you just have to take your shot, right? Booker is just having fun here obviously, but he’s doing this for a reason.
Even if the Suns don’t starting making noise this season, hopefully they’ll at least start being more fun to watch. In the meantime, kudos to Booker for getting this going. Nobody knows drama better than the NBA.
Is this a sign of things to come?
