Lillard Crashes Talkin Ball Set After Career Night

After Damian Lillard's career night, where he smashed his career high in points, scoring 37. In one 11 minute stretch in the second half, Lillard scored 24 points and became the fourth rookie in NBA history to record 37 points and seven threes in a game. The other are Jason Kidd, Brandon Jennings, and Rodrigue Beaubois.

So, when he returned home to Oakland, he wanted to show the nearly two suites, and most of a lower level section full just devoted to his family and friends, 200-plus in all, not to mention the countless other Blazers fans at Oracle Arena, how he earned the right as two-time rookie of the month.

After the game, Gina Johnson, Damian's mother, and sister Lanae, joined Blazers Insider Chris Haynes to talk about their son/brother's performance before the rookie crashed the set without warning. Watch!
