Damian Lillard has put himself in elite company, becoming only the third man to accomplish a certain feat.
Dolla Dame is one of the best young players in the game, and now he's alongside two of the best to ever step on a basketball court after Tuesday night's win over the Denver Nuggets.

Being in the same company as James and Robertson is truly a great accomplishment. Lillard reached this feat by scoring 19 points and seven assists in a 122-113 victory. Not only that, but it broke the two-way tie for the No. 8 seed in the West.
So far this season, Lillard is averaging 26.7 points and 5.8 assists per game. Personal accomplishments are great, but you've got to believe that Lillard is focusing his attention on getting the Trail Blazers to the playoffs, which begin in a couple of weeks.
