Nowitzki heaps praise on Booker after 28-point 4th quarter

BY Chris Gabel • January 13, 2017

Devin Booker nearly singled-handedly brought the Suns back from a double-digit deficit in the fourth quarter Thursday night, when he scored 28 points in the final period.

In addition to setting a new franchise record for points in a quarter -- en route to 39 for the game -- Booker more than caught the eye of future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki.

"The sky is the limit for this kid, he's got a bright future," Nowitzki said after the Mavericks' 113-108 win. "... He's gonna be fun to watch for a long time."

Such praise follows similar views expressed this past summer by LeBron James. Booker is building quite the cache of NBA references.

The Suns continue their trip to Mexico City when they face the Spurs on Saturday afternoon on FOX Sports Arizona and FOX Sports Go.
