Bucks’ Damian Lillard Dominates Suns with Historic Performance


Here’s how Damian Lillard made Bucks franchise history vs. the Suns.

The Milwaukee Bucks took it to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday after winning the game 140-129. However, Damian Lillard is the talk of the town right now breaking a franchise record with his monster performance.

Lillard finished the game with 31 points, 16 assists, and five rebounds. It marks the first time in Bucks history that a player recorded 30+ points and 15+ assists in a single game. The 16 assists ties his career best. That’s an amazing feat considering legendary point guard Oscar Robertson played in Milwaukee.

The Bucks are one of the best teams in the league right now and Damian Lillard has played a large part of that. He’s looked like his usual self while playing alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo. The fact Lillard is out here breaking franchise records makes him a legend of the sport himself. This season he’s averaging 24.3 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game.

Milwaukee doesn’t play again until Wednesday against the Boston Celtics. So Damian Lillard and the Bucks will have a couple of days to rest before then. With just 14 games remaining in the regular season, this team is a long shot to finish as the one seed in the Eastern Conference. Even so, they’re nearing a guaranteed spot as the two or three seed for the playoffs.
