The six players in NBA history to score at least 70 points in one game: Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain, David Thompson, David Robinson, Kobe and Devin Booker.
The 20-year-old Booker joined the exclusive club tonight in the Suns’ 130-120 loss to the Celtics. Booker shot 21-40 from the floor, 24-26 from the line and 4-11 of three-point range. He played 45 minutes and had 8 rebounds and 6 assists. He scored 51 in the second half. His 70 points is the most in a single game since Bryant had 81 back in 2006. No active player in the NBA has scored more than Booker in a single game.

It’s both a franchise record for the Suns and the most points that have ever been scored against the Celtics and the most points ever scored in Boston.
