Devin Booker has once again made Phoenix Suns history.

With 40 points in the Suns’ loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday night, Booker eclipsed the 30-point mark for the sixth game in a row, breaking a tie with Charles Barkley and Charlie Scott. Scott achieved this feat twice.

Over the last six games, Booker is averaging 34.8 points and shooting 53.7% from the field. He did all this while only making five 3-pointers in that span.

The Suns have gone 3-3 over the last six games.

Here are Booker’s stat lines during this stretch:

  • Dec. 27 at the Golden State Warriors: 34 points, 4 assists, 13-24 FG
  • Dec. 28 at the Sacramento Kings: 32 points, 10 assists, 14-23 FG
  • Dec. 30 at the Portland Trail Blazers: 33 points, 7 assists, 9-19 FG
  • Jan. 1 at the Los Angeles Lakers: 32 points, 7 assists, 11-23 FG
  • Jan. 3 vs. the New York Knicks: 38 points, 7 assists, 14-27 FG
  • Jan. 5 vs. the Memphis Grizzlies: 40 points, 6 assists, 13-20 FG

Sunday was the seventh time Booker has scored 40 points and had five assists in his career, which is the most in Suns history.

Phoenix has a day off Monday before hosting the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
