Which NBA player will drop 70 points next? Oddsmakers weigh in

Damian Lillard put on a show during the Portland Trail Blazers' 131-114 win over the Houston Rockets on Sunday night, finishing with 71 points, 13 threes, 6 assists, 6 rebounds and just 2 turnovers in 39 minutes.

Lillard became the first player in NBA history with 70+ points, 10+ threes, 5+ assists and 5+ rebounds in a game, and he was just one three-pointer shy of tying the NBA record for most threes in a game.

Lillard's monster performance marks the second 70-point game of this season, as Donovan Mitchell also dropped 71 points in the Cleveland Cavaliers' win over the Chicago Bulls last month. Only eight players have had a 70-point performance, which makes it even crazier that we've seen two such games this year.

Which player will drop 70 points next? 

The oddsmakers at SportsBetting.ag give Lillard the best odds at +400, followed by Mitchell (+500), Stephen Curry (+500), Ja Morant (+600) and Kevin Durant (+600). Here's the complete list:
