Lion’s heart Lillard stepped on the 71-point high.
The Portland Trail Blazers won the 2022-2023 NBA regular season Houston Rockets 131-114 at the Moda Center in Portland on the 27th (Korean time)스포츠토토.
Damian Lillard’s solo stage unfolded throughout the game. Lillard, who was unusual from the start by breaking through and even making a 3-point shot, quickly accumulated points. He scored a whopping 41 points in the first half alone.
Houston tried to block Lillard using cooperative defense, but they couldn’t control him at all. Lillard, who showed off his best shot sense, even succeeded in the logo shot and made a total of 13 3-pointers that day. Lillard, who scored 71 points in the fourth quarter, was replaced by Kion Johnson and headed to the bench with 44.1 seconds left.
Lillard’s final record was 71 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Of course, it is the record for the most points scored in a single game in Portland club history as well as an individual. He became the eighth player in NBA history to score 70 or more points.

Damian Lillard Donovan Mitchell
Lillard isn’t the first player to score 71 points this season. On January 3, Cleveland’s Donovan Mitchell scored 71 points against Chicago. However, unlike Mitchell, who played an overtime game, Lillard scored 71 points in the fourth quarter.
Portland’s unrivaled ace and a player who will go down in club history, Lillard is leaving many footprints with his explosive scoring ability. He has topped 60 points in a game five times in his last five seasons.
Portland, with Lillard at the forefront, escaped from a two-game losing streak and won a pleasant victory. After the game, Portland players showered Lillard with drinks and congratulated him on his record. Can Portland, which raised the atmosphere with Lillard’s one-man show, succeed in rebounding?
