Article Summary:

The then-20-year-old guard joined an elite group of players who have scored at least 70 points in game, including Elvin Hayes, Wilt Chamberlain, David Thompson, David Robinson and Kobe Bryant.

It wasn’t enough for the Kentucky product to have a historic night for his Suns, though – the Celtics managed to weather the offensive eruption from Booker, the most points ever scored by a player on Boston.

Forward Jae Crowder also added 13 points and 10 boards, and wing Gerald Green added 15 points off the bench.

The team was lead by 27 points and 7 boards from Paul Pierce, 20 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists from Kevin Garnett, and 11 points, 11 rebounds and 15 assists from point guard Rajon Rondo.
