Suns' Booker departs loss to Lakers with hamstring injury

Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker is on course to join rare company in the National Basketball Association.

Pacific division leaders the Los Angeles Clippers lost late, with a Dorian Finney-Smith tip shot putting the Dallas Mavericks ahead with 34.3 seconds left.

James, who will turn 34 on December 30, signed with the Lakers in the offseason and is having one of the best seasons of his 16-year career, averaging 28.1 points, 7.8 rebounds and 6.6 assists through 22 games. Booker also missed three games in October after straining the very same hamstring in the Suns' fourth game of the season.

James hasn't averaged at least 28 points, seven rebounds and six assists since the 2009-10 season - his last in his first tour with the Cleveland Cavaliers before signing with the Miami Heat.

He was coming back to the team after missing Friday's loss to the Orlando Magic with a toe injury.

The 22-year-old guard re-aggravated the injury in the second quarter while he was running back to the defensive end of the floor.

"He's continuing to get better and better, not just offensively but defensively".

"He's always talking about me not passing the ball", Kuzma said.

The four-time NBA Most Valuable Player's attacking abilities were on full display as he carried the Lakers to a 104-96 victory the Indiana Pacers on Thursday (Nov 29), when he scored 12 of his 38 points in the final five minutes.
