Well, you’ve got the give the Phoenix Suns credit for finding ways to keep the waning days of another losing season exceptionally interesting. One day after fielding the youngest starting lineup in NBA history, the Suns headed to Massachusetts to take on the Boston Celtics … and Devin Booker decided to make some history of his own.
The Suns sophomore scored 70 points on Friday night on 21-for-40 shooting from the field, a 4-for-11 mark from 3-point land, and 24-for-26 shooting from the free-throw line. He did so for a tanking team in a 10-point loss to the Celtics that was not as close as the final score indicates, but still: he did so.
Yes, you read that right, No, it is not a typo.
Seventy. Seven-zero. Seventy. SEVENTY.
