With 71 points and 13 3-pointers, Damian Lillard set

 both career and franchise highs, and the Portland Trail Blazers

defeated the Houston Rockets 131-114 to end a two-game losing streak.

Lillard became the eighth player in NBA history to reach 70 points

He is the only player older than 30 to have

ever scored 70 points in an NBA game, 

and at age 32, he holds the record.
