    We're watching history in the making. With his 60 point game on Friday November 8, 2019, Damian Lillard set the Blazers all time scoring record for points in a game, again. This is his 7th time scoring 50 or more points in a game. He's done it 6 times in the regular season, and once in the playoffs. The only other Blazer to achieve this feat more than once is Geoff Petrie, who scored 51 points twice in 1973.

    Damian Lillard's 60 points on Friday eclipsed his previous club high of 59 points set back on April 8, 2017.

    Every year I keep thinking we've seen Dame's peak. Every year he proves me wrong.

    How many more times will we see Dame score 50 or more points in a game? Will he ever beat this club record of 60 points in a game? I wouldn't bet against him.

    Dame has come back on another level from last season. I wouldn't have thought it possible for him to do so, but every year he has grown in some way. He is truly among the elite players in the NBA.

    A player has scored 60+ points in a game 28 times since 1985.

    upload_2019-11-9_14-4-58.png

    Only 3 players have scored 60+ points in a game multiple times during that time span:
    - Kobe Bryant, 6 times.
    - Michael Jordan, 5 times.
    - James Harden, 3 time.

    Some notable scoring champions that are absent from this list:
    - Russell Westbrook (career high 58)
    - Stephen Curry (career high 54)
    - Kevin Durant (career high 54)
    - Dwyane Wade (career high 54)
    - Dominique Wilkins (career high 57)

    Dame is in some elite company.

    Why, it's not like CJ needs or wants the ball.

    If he kept up his current averages, it would be one of the top individual seasons of all time.

    You’re right. He’s decided to bring his own.

    I know it's only 10 games, but Damian is totally playing at a whole other level.

    Agreed, but I wish he didn't have to play this many minutes to get us to 4-6.
