Lillard joins 20,000 club as Bucks see off Spurs

He becomes the 51st player in NBA history to score over 20,000.

“I don’t want to fake downplay it like it’s nothing,” Lillard said. “I know it’s a big deal. It’s a great accomplishment. It’s a rare space to be in.

“I look at what led up to it. All of the things that I think of in high school, in college and the doubt that I faced over the course of my career, before the NBA – what I wasn’t supposed to be, what I wasn’t supposed to accomplish, and just my mentality through all those things.

“Sometimes you don’t really see the light at the end of the tunnel. You’ve just got to have that faith in yourself.”

Bucks coach Adrian Griffin was full of praise for the 33-year-old.

He said: “”When you look at Dame, obviously he can shoot the ball.

“He can stretch the floor. He just puts a lot of pressure on your defence. If you bring your bigs up, he can drive around them. He’s strong enough and physical enough to finish at the rim. He just has no weaknesses on the offensive end.”

Giannis Antetokounmpo also played a major role in the win over the Spurs. He scored a season low 11 points but still managed a triple-double by adding 16 assists and 14 rebounds.
