Lillard’s tying with Donovan Mitchell season-high makes his mom upset

Damian Lillard tied Cleveland’s Donovan Mitchell for the most points in a game this season after Mitchell also scored 71 in a win over Chicago on Jan. 2. Lillard broke his own franchise mark of 61 points, which he’d done twice, on a three-pointer. Mitchelle on the other hand matched the second-highest-scoring game of the NBA that hasn’t been seen in almost 45 years. With legendary players like David Thompson, Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, David Robinson, and Elgin Baylor this record becomes special for both of the players.
