Damian Lillard put up a season-high 60 points to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a 134-124 win over the Utah Jazz after a wild scoring outburst in the third quarter. He narrowly missed his career best of 61 points, however, after a late 3-pointer fell short.
Lillard now has 15 50-point games in his career, which is the sixth most in league history. Wednesday also marked the fourth game where he’s scored 60 points or better, which is the third most in NBA history. It’s also the third 60-point game across the league this season, following 71 from the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Donovan Mitchell and 60 from the Dallas Mavericks’ Luka Doncic.
