Suns’ Devin Booker joins Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson as only players with consecutive 30-point halves

Devin Booker, Allen Iverson, Kobe Bryant, Suns

Fresh off of dropping 59 points against the Utah Jazz, Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns is back to his typical high-scoring ways tonight against the Washington Wizards.

In a game that has featured a wild dunk by Washington’s Jeff Green, Booker dropped his second consecutive game in which he scored at least 30 points a half. According to ESPN Stats & Info, he joined some elite company with that tally.

There’s no question that Booker is a walking bucket. He is a brilliant shooter and can score in a variety of ways – no matter what kind of defense he’s facing on a night-to-night basis.

In the Phoenix Suns previous game against the Utah Jazz, as previously mentioned, Booker dropped a whopping 59 points – and he was cruelly kept from a 60-burger by the Jazz intentionally fouling his teammates to keep him from going full “Booker vs. Boston Celtics” from a couple years ago.

Though the Suns are owners of one of the worst records in the NBA, Booker is a shining star for a team that desperately needs something to cheer about. Perhaps he might be a classic “good stats, bad team” player, but his shooting is fairly portable and would likely fit well on any team in the NBA.

No matter what, joining Allen Iverson and Kobe Bryant in any category is rarefied air.
