Jeremy Sochan gets the last laugh as NBA star responds to Devin Booker’s taunts after Spurs beat Suns

PHOENIX Suns star Devin Booker tried to get under Jeremy Sochan’s skin in a wild NBA matchup on Thursday – but the San Antonio Spurs forward has gotten the last laugh.

The Spurs took a 132-121 win, beating the Suns again thanks to a career night from Victor Wembanyama.

Booker, 27, returned to the court on Thursday night following a four-game break forced by an ankle injury.

And he nearly dropped a triple-double, ending the night with 31 points, nine rebounds, and 13 assists.

He and Kevin Durant led Phoenix’s second-half comeback quest, breathing life into their team after it fell 27 points down.

Booker registered his 12th assist after Durant’s block on Sochan, 20, sent the Suns charging down the court in transition six minutes into the fourth quarter.

The 6-foot-6 guard found Keita Bates-Diop with a crafty shovel pass to set up the forward for an easy dunk, which cut San Antonio’s lead to 111-108.

Booker then seemingly mocked Sochan for his blocked layup attempt as they were leaving the court for a timeout called by Gregg Popovich.

The amped-up guard looked the Spurs forward in the eye with a smile on his face as he walked past him.

He also appeared to have directed a few words in the former No. 9 pick’s direction.

A clip of the taunt quickly made its way onto social media – and Sochan made sure to reference it after San Antonio ended up prevailing in the game to beat Phoenix in back-to-back games.

“They lost, post the rest,” the Polish forward wrote while sharing the video on X.

And NBA fans loved Sochan’s response.

“Talk yo s**t twin,” one wrote.

“Cook them up Jeremy,” another added.

“Talk to them. Great job at point tonight. Let’s keep it going,” a third said.

Sochan registered 14 points on 53.8% shooting in addition to five rebounds and nine assists against the Suns.

But Wembanyama stole the show, exploding for 38 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, a steal, and two blocks to carry his team to a win.

His scoring tally was the third-highest by a rookie in Spurs history with only David Robinson logging more in the past, per ESPN.

Wemby also became the first player with 100 points and 10 blocks in his first five NBA games since Shaquille O’Neal in 1992.

He’s quickly proven Shaq wrong after the four-time NBA champion compared the French phenom to Bol Bol.
