Damian Lillard put on a show in Game 5 against the Denver Nuggets, erupting for 55 points and 10 assists.
He was every reason the Portland Trail Blazers were in this game, first helping them erase a 22-point first-half deficit. Then, he forced overtime with a clutch 3-pointer, only to do it again in double overtime.

Despite the 147-140 loss, the Trail Blazers superstar was setting and breaking records left, right and center.
It left the NBA fraternity including current and former players speechless as they took to Twitter to share their reactions.
