Booker has set an NBA record with this playoff run

Devin Booker’s first experience in the NBA Playoffs has went pretty well so far.

Booker was drafted in 2015, and this year is experiencing his first postseason action, and he’s made the most of it so far.

While the Suns fell short last night and the Finals are now tied 2-2, Booker passed Rick Barry for the most points in an NBA Playoffs in a player’s first appearance.

Booker was averaging more than 26 points per game going into Game 4, and finished last night with 42 points. During the playoffs, Booker has 542 points, ahead of Rick Barry with 521 and Julius Erving with 518.

The Suns need two more wins to bring home the title, which is certainly the bigger priority for Booker, but this has been a great playoff run for him.

That was probably the only real foul he committed all game and didn’t even get called.
