On Wednesday evening, in a thrilling matchup, Damian Lillard left his mark on NBA history as the Milwaukee Bucks faced off against the Portland Trail Blazers in Oregon.

This game marked Lillard's first return to Portland since his offseason trade to the Bucks after spending 11 seasons with the Trail Blazers.

The All-Star point guard's historic moment came as he surpassed Mitch Richmond's all-time scoring record, securing the 47th spot with a total of 20,498 points.

Lillard now sets his sights on surpassing LaMarcus Aldridge (20,558) in the next milestone on the scoring list.

Lillard's individual achievements are complemented by his instrumental role in the Bucks' success this season.

Currently holding the second seed in the Eastern Conference with an impressive 32-15 record in 47 games, the team has demonstrated resilience with a 7-3 record in their last ten games, including an 11-10 record in away games.

With eyes set on the future, the Bucks will continue their journey, facing Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday evening in Texas. 

Lillard, a sixth pick in the 2012 NBA Draft out of Weber State, is now in his 12th season, boasting career averages of 25.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.7 assists, and 1.0 steals per contest. 

His impact extends beyond regular-season stats, having led the Trail Blazers to the 2019 Western Conference Finals and contributing to 61 NBA playoff games. (Source: Sports Illustrated)
