Devin Booker scored 59 points and it’s not even a career-high.
The 22-year old former Wildcat finished one point away from his second career 60-point performance in a blowout loss to the Utah Jazz. Booker almost doubled the rest of his team’s output. No other Sun scored in double figures, combining for 33 points in the 125-92 loss.
To get to 59 points, Booker made 19-of-34 shots, 16-of-17 free throws and 5-of-8 three-pointers. The Jazz intentionally fouled with 20 seconds to play to keep Booker from breaking 60. Just a few of his best moments:
Two guys all over Book?

Booker is the fourth player in NBA history with multiple 50-point games before his 23rd birthday, joining Rick Barry (7), LeBron James (3) and Kyrie Irving (2). Tom Chambers is the only player in franchise history with multiple 50-point games. Booker’s first game over 50 was a 70-point performance against the Celtics in 2017.
Devin Booker is a bad, bad man.
