5 Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day– April 9, 2017
1. It’s about ‘Dame Time.’
Damian Lillard’s franchise-record 59 points vs Utah is all the buzz right now but the real awesome stat for Dame and the Blazers? Lillard had ZERO turnovers in 42 minutes and the team had a total of THREE.
2. Speaking of the Portland-Utah game…
…Joe Johnson reached the 20,000-point plateau. He’s the 42nd player to do it and the seventh active player to have that many points only behind Dirk Nowitzki, LeBron James, Paul Pierce, Carmelo Anthony, Vince Carter and Dwyane Wade.
