To end the slate of nationally televised games for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Damian Lillard saved the best for last.
The franchise star scored a career-high and franchise-record 61 points against the Golden State Warriors to will Portland to an overtime victory.
The whole country took notice, as did Dame's former teammate Evan Turner.
Dolla with another 60 point effort??— Evan Turner (@thekidet) January 21, 2020
Portland, can y’all name a street after him or something. Maybe even a high school idk but dude gotta get illuminated lol wow
I don't know about you, but a high school named after Lillard would immediately become the go-to school to attend in Portland. If that's too much, a street name is the least the city can do for Portland's most beloved son.
Turner and Lillard were teammates from 2015-2019 until he was traded to Atlanta in exchange for Kent Bazemore this past offseason.
Current and former teammates CJ McCollum and Meyers Leonard found Turner's tweet as funny as the rest of us.
