Devin Booker. He’s 20 years old, and the Phoenix Suns sophomore could not miss on Friday. In the first half, he had 19 points. In the second half, he dropped 51. Let’s repeat: FIFTY. ONE.
Booker is the sixth player in NBA history to score 70 or more points in a game, and by far the youngest. No player under 21 years old had ever scored more than 56 points in a game — but Booker did. Holy hell.Here’s the free throw to give him 70.
The Suns lost in a blowout, but by the end of the game, that hardly mattered. It was all about Booker, to see how high he could climb.
It didn’t matter how — Booker was scoring from everywhere.
