After a strong rookie season, former Kentucky star Devin Booker appears poised for an even better second season for the Phoenix Suns.
The sharpshooter lit up the nets over the weekend and made a little NBA history in the process, becoming the youngest player in NBA history to score at least 38 points in consecutive games.
Booker, 20, dropped a career-high 39 points Sunday night in a loss against the Los Angeles Lakers two days after he scored 38 points in a win against New Orleans.

Here are some highlights from Sunday night:
Both weekend scoring outputs were career-highs for Booker, who was the 13th pick of the 2015 NBA Draft by Phoenix.
Booker averaged 13.8 points, 2.6 assists and 2.5 rebounds in his rookie season with the Suns. Through six games this year, he is averaging 23.0 points, 3.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds.
Booker, the son of former Missouri star Melvin Booker, played one season in Lexington, helping the 2014-15 team to the Final Four.
The guard is becoming just the latest success story that Kentucky coach John Calipari can tout on the recruiting trail.
