Suns star Devin Booker has settled his beef with the lone “fan” that heckled him during Tuesday’s win in Toronto.

Booker took issue with the Raptors’ mascot – known just as “The Raptor” – during the last seconds of the Suns’ 99-95 victory for distracting him at the free throw line.

In between free throw attempts, with 4.5 seconds left in the game, an angry Booker asked the officiating crew to relocate The Raptor, who was crouched down behind the basket. The mascot complied and moved to the side.

“We hashed it out. We homies now,” Booker said after the game. “We’re cool now, though.”

TSN broadcasters couldn’t help but laugh at the situation as it played out due to Toronto’s empty arena. The Raptors are currently playing home games at Scotiabank Arena without fans due to local health regulations amid the rise in COVID-19 cases.

The broadcasters also noted that Booker played college basketball at Kentucky, where he was used to performing in front of massive crowds of fans.

Booker finished with 16 points, five rebounds and three assists in the win, which snapped Toronto’s six-game winning streak.

Phoenix improved to 31-9, and currently sit atop the Western Conference. They travel to Indiana to play the Pacers on Friday.
