Devin Booker has played like a veteran during his first playoff appearances as he broke the record for most points from a player in his NBA playoff debut.

In particular, Booker surpassed Rick Barry‘s 1967 record after exploding for 42 points in the Suns’ Game 4 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

He also became the third player to record at least three 40-point games in his first career postseason, behind Wilt Chamberlain and Rick Barry.

Game 5 of the NBA Finals will take place on Saturday as Devin Booker and the Suns are heading back to Phoenix to face Milwaukee in front of their home crowd.
