Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard scored a career-high 59 points on Saturday night. The mark was also a team record, surpassing former record holder Damon Stoudamire.

But even as the Blazers beat the Utah Jazz, 101-86, Lillard didn’t keep the game ball for himself.

Instead, Lillard gave the ball to Jazz wingman Joe Johnson, who surpassed 20,000 career points in the matchup.
