After putting up a new NBA record, Damian Lillard was given a drug test to discover performance-enhancing drugs that displeased the star player.
"I was like, 'Are you serious?'," said the seven-time All-Star. "I took the urine test yesterday, and then they backed it up with the blood drawn tonight after the game. They know that I'm afraid of needles. I know I got a lot of tattoos, but a blood draw is different from tattoos."
The Trail Blazers' Sunday night (February 26) victory over the Houston Rockets saw him shoot 22 of 38 from the field and banked 13 three-pointers, establishing a new franchise record.
Lillard, 32, finished the thrilling game as the oldest player in league history with a 70-point performance, becoming the only player in the NBA's history to do so.
Aside from being an Oakland native, the National Basketball Association only player to score 70 points in a game in less than 40 minutes of regulation.
Chauncey Billups, the head coach of the Trail Blazers, talked about Dame Dolla's supernatural ability and ability to play.
"It's just insane," Portland head coach Chauncey Billups told Sean Harkin. "But then in the second half, he made every correct play." "He just wasn't forcing at all."
