Patrick Mahomes saw Devin Booker drop nearly 50 as the Suns eliminated the Lakers 4-2. Mahomes Tweeted out a response that seemed appropriate.
The Suns, Lakers game was never really close, save for a few moments in the 3rd and 4th quarter as the Suns won 113-100. Overall, the loss of Anthony Davis proved too large for the Lakers to overcome. Phoenix controlled the Lakers from the tip, and they never allowed LeBron to get cooking.
Devin Booker in particular was sensational. He dropped 47 points to go along with 8 three pointers as the Lakers simply could not contain him.

I’ve said all along that Devin Booker is a star, not a superstar. Tonight felt like he broke through: SUPERstar.

Damn! @DevinBooker31 is destroying these boys. Watching this up close, they are literally toying with the @Lakers. Finally, Coach Fogel wants to double Booker. Too late. @Suns are flowing now. @Lakers body language awful. Don’t look like they have any flight left in them.

What Booker did will go down in the history books as, LeBron James walked off the court in the first round for the first time in his career. Booker’s play kept the Suns on pace throughout the whole game, and when it came down to it, they were able to finish the job.
