NBA players react to Devin Booker scoring 70 points

Devin Booker had a game he will never forget and players from around the NBA had some great reactions to his historic night.

Coming into Friday, Booker’s career-high for points in a game was 39, which he has done on three occasions. Against the Celtics he bettered that number by 31.

The 20-year-old set a new Suns franchise record with 70 points, topping the previous mark of 60 set by Tom Chambers. Ironically, Chambers set the prior record on March 24, 1990. Booker had 19 points at halftime before exploding for 51 in the second half. It was the highest single-game point total since Kobe Bryant’s 81-point performance against the Raptors in 2006.

Not only were fans in awe of Booker’s accomplishment, but other players from around the NBA were as well. Here are some of the reactions.

Here’s a photo shared by Jared Dudley of Booker holding a piece of paper with “70” on it while surrounded by teammates.

Last year, Booker said he didn’t think anyone would get to 81 points again.

He wasn’t too far off tonight.
