Portland Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard hits playoff record 12 3s in 2-OT loss

In one of the most electrifying postseason performances ever, Damian Lillard had 55 points and an NBA playoff record 12 3-pointers in the Portland Trail Blazers' double-overtime loss to the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 on Tuesday night.

Lillard broke the record of 11 set by Klay Thompson in 2016 in Game 6 against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Lillard played 50 minutes and shot 17-of-24 from the field, including 12-of-17 from 3-point range, but it wasn't enough as the Nuggets held him off in the second overtime won 147-140 to take a 3-2 series lead.
