I say it all the time … This man is ice cold, and here we go again.
Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard went the hell off Sunday against the Houston Rockets, setting both career and franchise records with a 71-point scoring spree, which is tied for the most points by a single player in a single NBA game this season.
On Jan .2, Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Donovan Mitchell racked up 71 points against the Chicago Bulls, setting a season record that he now shares with Lillard.
Lillard hit 13 three-pointers Sunday night, propelling the Blazers to a 131-114 win that ended a two-game losing streak.
“I enjoy those moments in the game when I’m just going after people, when I’m in attack mode,” Lillard said.
71 PTS, 13 3PM, 6 REB, 6 AST…

Here are the full highlights:
I’ve always loved Damian Lillard, and always gloat about him being “ice cold” whenever I can, because, well … he is. And here we go again with a 71-point performance. That’s Damian, man. (RELATED: LaMelo Ball Drives The Flashiest Cars, And Reckless As Hell At That)
By the way, I love how he did this literally just days after he and the Blazers made a rap video while stuck on a plane for seven hours because of snow. If you didn’t see this, you should. Damian killed it with the rapping:
