Damian Lillard literally pulled up from the logo against the Nets, and obviously buried it

If you’ve not been paying attention to the NBA Bubble, you’ve missed out on one of the greatest heaters in the history of American sport. Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard is on a mission, and on Thursday night he went off for the millionth game in a row to get help get his team into a play-in game.

Against the Brooklyn Nets, Lillard had 42 points, a light night given he just dropped 61 and 52 the two games prior. He’s had 29 or more points in six of Portland’s eight games since the restart of the NBA season, and in four of those games he’s had at least 45. In one of the two games they lost, he ONLY had 22. For shame.

Lillard went 8-for-14 from three-point range on Thursday, which is impressive. But not all eight were created equal. One of them came from the NBA logo at half court, and we’re not even slightly exaggerating. His foot was literally on the logo:

Just silly. At what point does he start pulling up from beyond half court? Actually, let's not give he or Steph Curry any ideas.
