Damian Lillard is one of the best shooters in the league being among those that can easily drain a three from insanely deep range.

Lillard was on a mission Tuesday to put an end to the Portland Trail Blazers’ losing streak leading his team in a 133-112 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

While Anfernee Simmons (27 points, nine threes) had a huge part in Portland’s blowout win, Lillard achieved an impressive milestone reaching the 2,000 made threes in his career.

According to ESPN, Lillard became the second fastest player to reach 2,000 career-only behind Steph Curry. Curry made them in 597, while Lillard did it in 670 appearances.

Lillard had 23 points on 6-of-14 shooting along with four threes against the depleted Pacers. The Blazers snap a five-game losing streak to improve to 33-28.
