Video highlights of Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard scoring a career-high 41 points in Tuesday night's loss to the Sacramento Kings.

Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard scored a career-high 41 points during a 123-119 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night, thanks to a monster fourth quarter.

YouTube user Dawk Ins has put together a comprehensive highlight reel of Lillard's big night.

Lillard's 26 points in the fourth quarter set a franchise-record for points in a quarter.

Jonathan Santiago and James Ham of CowbellKingdom.com report post-game reaction from the Kings...

"Damian Lillard is a great player," Kings head coach Michael Malone said after the game. "He's an all-star, like Kobe Bryant said. He's deserving. He put on a show in the fourth quarter and that was special."

...

"That's the craziest game I've ever been a part of," Kings center DeMarcus Cousins said after the victory. "I could not wait until the end. I don't ever want to be in that situation with the ball in Damian Lillard's hands. I'm glad we got the win, but that was a scary game."

Mike Tokito of The Oregonian has quotes from Lillard and Blazers coach Terry Stotts...

"My teammates, they just keep encouraging me because they know with threes, you can put points on the board fast," Lillard said. "If I make a few, I can get going."

...

"That's the way Damian plays," Stotts said. "He's a competitor, and at no time does he ever think he's out of a game. He's done that a lot for us in the two years that he's been here. He's a special player."
