Portland point guard Damian Lillard scored 55 points and 10 assists, but Denver taking game 5 to lead 3-2. No defensive emphasis in this one, a total of 287 points scored. The one man show that is Lillard contrasts to a spread out points contribution from the Nuggets who had three players scoring plus 20. Big Jok(number 15) was the man for Denver especially in that first quarter ending up with 38 points and 10 rebounds for the match.
Watch when scores were 31-20. Jokic is one of the best shooters in the NBA known from his three pointers but he scores a lot of twos from very few attempts which is just as good as scoring few threes from a lot of attempts. Watch 35-22 to Denver. This is one of Damian’s assists of the match. That pass to Nurkic was awesome, it didn’t take him a millisecond to see he was open showing great vision. Nuggets winning it by seven, they were slightly better than Portland’s field goal stat 48% to 45%. Lillard got a lot of records in this match. The most three pointers in a playoff match, 12. First player to score 55 points with double digit assists. This will come to knot if his team doesn’t make the next round, it’s a team sport hey.
