NBA: Utah Jazz at Portland Trail Blazers Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Last night Damian Lillard went absolutely nuclear on the Utah Jazz, and his Portland Trail Blazers won an important game. Lillard’s 59 points was the most anyone has scored on Utah this season. And after looking at Basketball-Reference.com - I found out that it was the 3rd most ANYONE HAS EVER SCORED ON THE JAZZ, including the playoffs.

  1. George Gervin (Spurs) 63 points, April 1978
  2. Kobe Bryant (Lakers) 60 points, April 2016
