The Association got some excitement in what was looking like a snoozer just a couple weeks before the postseason.

The young (and tanking) Suns got some reassurance that they have their future in guard Devin Booker, as he lit up the Celtics for 70 (!!!) points.

Booker is just the sixth player ever to score 70 points, and did so at the youngest age: just twenty years old.

Booker shot over 50% from the field, and scored 51 in the second half. It’s the most points scored in an NBA game since Kobe scored 81 in 2006.

The NBA world took notice quickly, and Booker may have given us our biggest regular season highlight with just two weeks to go.
