On Tuesday night, Damian Lillard led the Portland Trail Blazers to a come-from-behind victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. The Blazers scored 43 fourth-quarter points to earn a 125-124 win and improve to 23-16 on the season.

During the contest, Lillard was on fire. He made 65 percent of his shots, all 18 of his free throw attempts, and scored a season-high 50 points to carry Portland to the win.

And in doing so, Lillard reached another statistical milestone.

According to the NBA’s official Twitter account, Lillard moved into a tie for the seventh-most 50-point games in NBA history after his scoring outburst on Tuesday. Who is he tied with? LeBron James.

Any time a player can match LeBron in any statistical category, that’s a massive achievement. It also speaks volumes about Lillard’s ability as a scorer, as he has posted 12 of these 50-point games in just 653 games.

Meanwhile, James has played in 1,304 games, nearly twice as many as Lillard, and has the same amounts of 50-point outings as the Blazers start. Plus, James hasn’t scored 50 in a game since November of 2018.
