Friday's day in the NBA recorded a very rare statistical event.
For the first time in 40 years, two players manufacture 50 or more points on the same day.
The first one was Damian Lillard. The Portland Trailblazers base scored 60, top of his career.
Lillard scored seven triples and went perfect in 15 free throw attempts. in his duel against Brooklyn Nets.
The other player who achieved his fifties was D’Angelo Russell, Warriors base of Golden State, in the game against Timberwolves of Minnesota.
The funny thing in the cases of Lillard and Russell is that their teams lost, ratifying the saying that "a single stick does not make a mountain."
On April 9, 1978, David Thompson (Denver Nuggets) converted 73 points and George Gervin (San Antonio Spurs) finished with 63, according to lanacion.com. They did not detail if their sets won but it is difficult to happen.
