The Trail Blazers snapped a two-game losing streak with a memorable 129-124 victory over the Warriors on Monday. Win aside, Damian Lillard stole the show with a career-high 61-point performance. Held to 21 points in the first half, Lillard erupted for 40 points down the stretch, pushing the game to overtime.

Here are the highlights from Dame’s historic night (via House of Highlights):

Unlike Lillard’s 60-point performance against the Nets earlier this season, the Blazers escaped Monday’s contest with a win.

Lillard recorded 11 three-pointers—a career-high. Outside of the attempts from the field, the former Weber State standout went a perfect 16-of-16 from the free throw line. On top of his scoring, Lillard recorded 10 rebounds and 7 assists.

The Blazers return to action on Thursday to host the Mavericks.
