Damian Lillard Becomes 5th Player in NBA History to Score 2,500 3-Pointers

The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Sacramento Kings by a single point on Sunday night, and they owe it all to Damian Lillard! His three-pointer at the buzzer in overtime led them to this narrow victory, while also making him the fifth player in NBA history to score 2,500 three-pointers. The latest face-off between the Bucks and the Kings was as intense as it gets, and they kept us on the edge of our seats until the very last second. Milwaukee eventually scored their 15th consecutive win over Sacramento after Lillard sunk a shot from about 30 feet in overtime, leading his side to an unforgettable 143-142 win. Lillard joined the Bucks back in September, after spending the entirety of his NBA career with the Portland Trail Blazers. He quickly adjusted to playing with Milwaukee, and even set the franchise record for a debut, with 39 points scored in his first game. It took years for Lillard to finally reach 2,500 career three-pointers, but the shot that got him over the finish line wasn’t that difficult to make. “I just changed direction and got into space where I could get a good look at the rim. It was a pretty comfortable shot. These are the kinds of game that you don’t want to let them slip. It’s a quality win against a good team,” said Lillard post-game.
