Monsters Ltd.: 71 points for Damian Lillard in Portland's victory, the Lakers came back from a 27 deficit | Israel Hayom


An unforgettable night in the NBA: the star became the eighth player in history to score 70+ points, the Trailblazers beat Houston 114:131 • The team from Los Angeles is responsible for this year's comeback on the way to 108:11 in Dallas

What did we see here? 

Unforgettable games ended tonight (between Sunday and Monday) in the NBA.

In the spotlight: Damian Lillard didn't see eye to eye on the way to 71 points in the Portland victory, and the Lakers came back from a 27(!) deficit on the way to a victory in Dallas.

Portland (31:29) - Houston (47:13) 114:131


Damian Lillard delivered his career-high performance and one of the greatest performances in NBA history, finishing the game with 71 points, making him only the eighth player in history to score 70+ points per game.

The star of the Trailblazers spent 39 minutes on the floor and these are his figures: 22 of 38 from the field, 13 of 22 from three, and 14 of 14 from the line.

To all these he also added 6 rebounds and 6 assists.


We all remember the historic game of Cleveland's Donovan Mitchell, who scored 71 points of his own earlier this season, but he only reached that number in overtime, which Lillard really didn't need.

As for the game itself, which became the marginal thing and rightly so, Portland was in control throughout.

Next to Lillard, Jeremy Grant finished with 13 and Nasir Little with 11 and 9 rebounds.

On the other side that got on the head, Alfern Shangon and Jay Sean Tate finished with 17 points apiece.

Dallas (30:32) - Los Angeles Lakers (32:29) 111:108

No other team has erased a 27 deficit this season, and tonight it happened, in a big way.

The Lakers are responsible for an unusual struggle against Dallas, who suffer their fourth loss in five games, and are still unable to find the connection between Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.

The Lakers completed the turnaround at the beginning of the last quarter, during which the lead changed sides no less than eight times.

LeBron nailed a three-pointer and with another basket was responsible for it, and in the end Anthony Davis closed the story.

Davis excelled with 30 points and 15 rebounds, LeBron added 26 and 8 rebounds.

On the disappointed side, Doncic finished with 26 and 9 rebounds and Kyrie with 21 and 11 rebounds.

The Lakers have another step to the top 10, and if they somehow manage to do it in a season like this, there is no doubt that it will return to what happened tonight.
