Kyrie Irving Calls Devin Booker This Season's MVP

Following Devin Booker’s 49 point performance last night in a 140-130 victory over the Denver Nuggets, Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving took to Twitter to give Booker MVP praise.

Booker is the leading scorer on the team with the best record in the League, as the Phoenix Suns (60-14) are the only 60 win team in the NBA. Booker’s 49 point outing against Denver came on the fifth anniversary of his 70-point outing against the Boston Celtics, which ties for sixth all-time in a single game.

For March, Booker averaged 30.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 7.0 assists, and 1.5 steals per game while shooting 55.0 percent from the field and 41.9 percent from the arc. The latter is well above his career mark of just 35.6 percent.
