Former Kentucky basketball star Devin Booker became the fourth-youngest player to reach 3,000 career points in NBA history in the Phoenix Suns’ loss to the Brooklyn Nets Monday night. The 21-year-old needed six points to reach the mark going into the game and got it with a 19-foot jumper with 7:46 to play in the first quarter. “It means a lot,” Booker said after the game. “My dream my whole life is to play in the NBA. Once I got here I realized I wanted to leave a mark. … I’m trying to do it, and trying to get wins along with it.” Booker’s 11 first-quarter points got the Suns out to a fast start in their eventual 98-92 loss at home. Booker finished the game with 18 points.
