Suns standout guard Devin Booker left Sunday's game against the Lakers with a hamstring injury

After some signs of life from the Phoenix Suns in the second half, the Los Angeles Lakers extended their lead and left their opponents little hope.

This season Booker is averaging 24.5 points, 7.0 assists, and 3.7 rebounds for the Suns, who with the loss Sunday drop to 4-19, worst in the National Basketball Association and tied with Cleveland for the least amount of wins.

Booker has faced a handful of injuries this season, including a toe injury that forced him to miss Friday's game against the Orlando Magic.

The 23-year-old was influential with and without the ball in Sunday's 120-96 victory over the Phoenix Suns, though, contributing a game-high 23 points, while also adding eight rebounds, three assists and a block. A rematch against James and the Lakers (13-9) should inspire Booker to play through the pain, however.

"That's the challenge of things I've been kind of battling with since the season started", James said. "We're at our best when we're running and gunning and just pushing the ball ahead, just making layups, our shooters shooting 3s and just feeling comfortable on the floor".

The Suns listed Booker as questionable to return.

Booker had scored scored six points in 17 minutes before leaving with a strained hamstring in the second quarter.
