Damian Lillard base, with 60 points, and escort D’Angelo Russell, who reached 52, were the leading leaders of the NBA day, which also highlighted the Slovenian forward Luka Doncic.
Despite this, the three suffered defeats with their respective teams of the Portland Trail Blazers, Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks.
The Trail Blazers lost 115-119 to the Brooklyn Nets whose best player was the base guard reserve Spencer Dinwiddie, with 34 points, although the protagonism was monopolized by Lillard, who established a franchise mark with the highest single scoring game in this new season.
In 40 minutes of play, Lillard scored 19 of 33 field shots, including 7 of 16 triples and was perfect in the free throws with 15 of 15.
For his part, Russell returned as the Warriors holder and contributed 52 points against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
It was the second time in NBA history that there were at least two scorers of 50 points on the same day.
