On Friday night, Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard had one of the best games of his career during his team's 137-105 win against the Golden State Warriors at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon.

He scored 51 points and seven assists in a truly incredible performance against the current champions of the NBA.

However, some have questioned if the 25-year-old could repeat that performance again, which hasn't gone down well with Lillard.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson said the following night at the LA Clippers game that the Blazers clash was still on the team's mind, and that they needed to prove a point. 

He said, according to a tweet posted on the Fox Sports article: “I was just proud of the way we responded from the jump, especially after letting [Portland’s] best player go for 50 last night. We had to give some back. We were out to prove a point that last night was a fluke.”

When Lillard heard the comments, he thought Thompson was taking a shot at him, rather than his own team's efforts, and he reacted accordingly.

Somebody then corrected the two-time NBA All-Star and said that the Warriors guard wasn't talking about him, to which Lillard responded in a tweet: "Doesn't matter what he's talkin bout... Nobody is above gettin beat."

Any team can defeat anybody on any given night in the NBA, no matter what form that team might be on. There are no such things as flukes in the league, so a team like the Warriors must be aware that anything can happen when you walk onto the court on game day.
