He’s at it again. Damian Lillard has made a habit of grabbing headlines with his brilliant postseason play, and the Portland Trail Blazers superstar did so again Tuesday night, albeit in a crushing 147-140 overtime defeat at the hands of the Denver Nuggets. An insanely efficient Lillard scored 55 points, shooting 17-of-24 from the field. He also set a single-game NBA playoff record with 12 three-pointers on 17 attempts. Dame’s scoring barrage was so remarkable that it had former champs Kevin Durant and Steph Curry singing his praises. If nothing else, one thing is for sure. There truly is no bad shot when it comes out of the six-time All-Star’s hands.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. Despite Lillard’s dominance this postseason, leading all players in points and threes, his Blazers face elimination Thursday night. It may take another Herculean effort from beyond the arc if Portland hopes to force a Game 7. So with that in mind, how many of the NBA players with the most three-pointers made in a single postseason can you name in five minutes?
