Devin Booker Stays Down After Fall, Calls It ‘The Luka Special’ (Video)

The Western Conference semifinals series between the Suns and the Mavericks may just be stoking the flames of one of the best young rivalries in the NBA between All-Stars Devin Booker and Luka Dončić.

The two players added another series of back-and-forth barbs to their budding rivalry during Tuesday’s Game 5.

In the middle of the Suns’ 110–80 rout of the Mavs, Dallas forward Dorian Finney-Smith fouled Booker hard in the third quarter as the Phoenix guard was driving to the hoop. The All-Star stayed down on the ground for quite a while, leading many to wonder if he was actually hurt or just exaggerating the contact for the officials.

It quickly proved to be the latter, as a fan sitting courtside captured video of Booker eventually laughing, saying his actions after the foul were the “Luka Special.”
