BBNBA: Devin Booker is the Third-Youngest Player with 4,000 Points

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.

    KAT didn’t look like he lost his cool. Look like he made a comment about the lack of a call.
