Damian Lillard is having one big game after another in the NBA “bubble”, helping the Portland Trail Blazers come one game away from the play-in tournament in Orlando.
Dame finished the game versus the Dallas Mavericks with 61 points tying his career-high, which was set previously this season.
He also led the Blazers to the win, shooting 17-of-32 from the field and making 9 threes. Lillard became the second player to record three or more games with 60+ points in a season.
Portland has one more seeding game to play in a race of four for the 8th seed with Memphis, Phoenix and San Antonio.
