PHOENIX — Devin Booker and Monty Williams have been named Western Conference's player and coach of the month honors for October and November.
The Suns have started the season 15-6, including the top seed in the conference.
In the first 21 games of the season, Booker has averaged 29 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 5.8 assists. Booker capped off a magical start to the year with an efficient 51-point performance in Wednesday night's 132-111 win over the Chicago Bulls.
It is Booker's second player of the month honor, having previously won in February 2021.
The start of the season has not been easy for the Suns, who have played without Chris Paul and Cam Johnson for half of their games. Despite that, they are 12-1 at home and currently on a six-game win streak.
Williams, the 2021 NBA Coach of the Year, has earned the honor four other times in his career.
The Suns host the Houston Rockets on Friday.
