Damian Lillard silky smooth 60-point career-high

Damian Lillard’s ascend to NBA stardom is a primary reason for anybody to cheer for the Portland Trail Blazers all-star guard. Lillard’s sharpshooting game, combined with his poignant and fierce lyrically skills are yet another glaring trend that have pushed his name towards a future hall-of-fame ballot and a potential thriving microphone ‘chin checking’ career if he so desires when his playing days are over.

On magical NBA Friday night, matched-up opposite one of the games’ best rising star — Oakland’s finest took his game to another level by dropping a career-high 60 points against Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets. The four-time all-star and 2017-18 All-NBA first-team guard drilled 19-of-33 (57%) field-goals, 7-of-16 (43%) three-pointers and went a perfect 15-for-15 from the free-throw line.

The two dynamic scoring guards have a history of finding an extra gear when facing each other. Irving dropped a career-high 55 points on Dame and the Blazers back in January 2015 when he played with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Although, the 60-point effort came in a tough 119-115 loss it’s hard to ignore the fact Lillard is one of a select few players that have dropped a 50-plus point game in the last five seasons — dating back to the 2015-2016 NBA season. Lillard’s previous best, was a 59-point outburst against the Utah Jazz in 2017.
