Devin Booker and the Phoenix Suns (53-13) took on Duncan Robinson and the Miami Heat (44-23) in part of the Wednesday NBA slate. It was the Suns who got the win with 111-90 being the final score.

Still without Chris Paul in the lineup, the Suns at least got Devin Booker back in the fold for this game after a four-game absence due to the NBA health & safety protocol.

Booker led the way for Phoenix in this Suns vs Heat matchup with 23 points, eight rebounds, and nine assists. He made it look easy coming back from a short layoff.

Deandre Ayton and Mikal Bridges have stepped up while both Booker and Paul were sidelined. While Booker is back in the lineup, those two remain pivotal. Bridges recorded 21 points and nine rebounds while Deandre Ayton totaled 19 points and 10 rebounds.
