Devin Booker battles Raptors mascot in final seconds of Suns win

Suns star Devin Booker has settled his feud with the one “fan” who harassed him during Tuesday’s win in Toronto.

Booker was talking to the Raptors’ mascot in the closing seconds of the Suns’ 99-95 win – otherwise known as “The Raptor” because he distracted him at the free-throw line.

In between free throw attempts, with 4.5 seconds left in the game, an angry Booker asked the crew on duty to move The Raptor, who was crouching behind the basket. The mascot obeyed and stepped aside.

“We took it out. We homies now,” Booker said after the game. “But we’re cool now.”

TSN stations couldn’t help but laugh at the situation unfolding because of Toronto’s empty arena. The Raptors are currently playing home games at Scotiabank Arena with no fans due to local health regulations amid the surge in COVID-19 cases.

The broadcasters also noted that Booker played college basketball in Kentucky, where he used to perform in front of huge crowds of fans.

Booker finished with 16 points, five rebounds and three assists in the win, which broke Toronto’s six-game winning streak.

Phoenix improved to 31-9 and currently tops the Western Conference. They travel to Indiana to play against the Pacers on Friday.
