Damian Lillard continues to amaze for the Portland Trail Blazers.

The 5x NBA-All Star had arguably the most efficient game of his NBA career Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings posting a stat line of 40 points, 13 assists, and no turnovers. 

No player in NBA history had ever had a game with 40+ points, 13+ assists, and no turnovers-- until tonight.

In fact, Dame's only the eighth player to score 40+ points, have 10+ assists without a turnover in NBA history.

Wednesday's performance was the 36th 40-point game of Lillard's career and was the 73rd game Dame dished out at least 10 assists.

CJ McCollum also had himself a game with 28 points, 10 assists and just one turnover after the ball slipped out of hands prior to him passing to an open shooter in the corner during the fourth quarter. 

After the performance, Lillard is averaging 26.1 points (10th in the NBA) and 6.4 assists (14th in the NBA) per game this season.
