In a triple OT thriller, Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard went off for 43 points in a road win over the San Antonio Spurs.
“They had two opportunities to step on us,” Lillard said. “The door was left open a little bit and we forced another overtime two times, which is not what people do to them. They usually finish you off. We got in a situation that they got in the first two overtimes and I wanted us to know that we just did it to them two times so don’t get excited and don’t think that what we did was easy, we’ve got to be better. We did that.”
Lillard’s previous career high was 41 points on January 7, 2014, against the Sacramento Kings.
