Devin Booker had an historic Friday night.
The former Kentucky shooting guard surpassed 4,000 career points in a 39-point performance. He’s the third-youngest to ever reach the milestone, only behind Kevin Durant and LeBron James.
Booker also had 8 assists and 6 rebounds in his fourth consecutive 30-point game, an achievement no Phoenix Sun has done since 2004.

Booker’s former teammate did not have such a pleasant night. Karl-Anthony Towns lost his cool in Utah and picked up two quick second quarter technicals to earn an ejection after scoring just 13 points.
