A battle of the NBA's best records saw one team shorthanded for the second half, and possibly beyond.

Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker exited Tuesday's game against the Golden State Warriors with a left hamstring injury, the team announced during the second quarter.

At the time of his exit, Booker had 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting with two rebounds and an assist in 15 minutes of play.

Booker entered Tuesday on pace for another strong season with the Suns, who took a 16-game winning streak into their game against the Warriors. In 20 games, Booker averaged 23.9 points per game on 45.8% shooting (41% from deep) with 5.1 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game.

Despite losing Booker, the Suns still managed to gut out a victory, prevailing 104-96 over the Warriors thanks to a late fourth-quarter run and an awful shooting game for Stephen Curry.

Devin Booker to miss a few games due to hamstring injury

Booker will reportedly miss a few games due to the injury, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. 

The injury is considered minor, and the Suns will play it safe with Booker to keep him healthy for the long haul. The Suns are 18-3 on the season, and sit in the top spot in the Western Conference after Tuesday's win.
