Booker Ejected, Knight Drops Game-High 32


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – In NBA action last night out in Denver, the Nuggets hosting Phoenix, Devin Booker dropped 24 points and got ejected for two technical fouls.

The former Cat responded by laughing it off and giving the ref a thumbs up and then signing an autograph for a fan on the way out.  Obviously Booker was not too concerned with getting tossed.

Brandon Knight went off for a game-high 32 points…including a huge jam down the middle of the lane.

Jamal Murray tagged Knight with 3 of his nine points.  A dribbling showcase gave way to the step-back top of the key jumper behind the arc.

The Nuggets won it 120-104.  Morehead State product Kenneth Faried went for 20 points, 15 rebounds.
