Portland was up 106-84 heading into the fourth quarter and Lillard didn’t play a single minute in that quarter.

Lillard may not have the championships and acolades that other players have, but he’s one of the best shooters in his generation.

Lillard drops 11 three-pointers in Blazers 133-112 win

His eleven three-pointers in last night’s game ties him for fourth all-time for three’s made in a game. The all-time record is help by four-time NBA champion Klay Thompson. He had 14 three’s vs the Chicago Bulls back in 2018. Blazers fans would have loved to see their superstar stay in the game to try and break the record. However, it was probably best for him to not play the fourth and risk re-injuring himself.

Lillard has missed eight games this season due to a calf injury and his head coach Chauncey Billups was likely playing it safe with his franchise player. Even Nets forward Kevin Durant went to twitter last night to try and vouch for Lillard to play the fourth quarter.

With his epic performance from deep last night, Lillard joined Steph Curry as the only two players in NBA history with at least three games with 11 or more three-pointers made.
