Devin Booker has provided a bright spot in an otherwise rough season for the Phoenix Suns and the rookie is putting his name in elite company early in his NBA career.
In a loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday, Booker racked up a career-high 34 points, edging the 32 points he racked up against the Indiana Pacers on Jan. 19. The shooting guard’s second game with 30 or more points made him one of the youngest players in NBA history to reach the mark in multiple games.

Booker was the No. 13 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft after playing just one season at Kentucky, where he averaged 10 points and 21.5 minutes per game. He made his NBA debut just two days before his 19th birthday.
With the Suns, Booker is averaging 11.4 points per game and racked up 27 in a win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday.
