All the records were broken on this night, as Damian Lillard went on a scoring barrage against the Utah Jazz.
Dame went off for 26 in the first quarter, which matched his own franchise record for most points in a quarter. His shot was on fire to the point that even falling-away three-pointers in the corner went down (about the 3:31 mark in the video.) Lillard eventually finished off the Jazz, with a stepback three with less then two minutes to go, extending the lead to 18. Damian couldn’t help but tap his wrist to signal Dame Time, as the Portland Trail Blazers bench celebrated (at the 5:40 mark.) Lillard ended up setting the Blazers franchise record for points (which he would break later in his career.)
The sneakers worn for this moment was the adidas Dame 3. This was the first signature shoe for Damian to feature the “Dame” moniker, as his previous shoes were dubbed the “D Lillard” 1 and 2. Full-length Bounce cushioning was used to provide a firm, yet springy feeling. A jacquard woven upper was utilized to provide a soft, durable structure.
Lillard rocked the white, red, and black “On Tour” colorway for this moment, which you can find HERE.
