NBA: Phoenix Suns at Portland Trail Blazers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Young Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker posted his 21st career 30+ point game on Saturday night against the Portland Trail Blazers, two days before his 21st birthday.

Booker has the third-most 30-point games in NBA history before turning 21 years old, behind only LeBron James (57) and Kevin Durant (28). He took over third place from Carmelo Anthony (17) last March.

You already know that Booker has the highest-scoring single game (70 points) in the history of the NBA among players before they turned 21 years old.

Booker also has the MOST three pointers ever made by a player before their 21st birthday (246), and the most games with at least one three-pointer made (122). For context, Booker has played the 11th-most minutes before turning 21 (4th most among guards).

Watch last night’s final game as a 20 year old.
