Milwaukee Bucks superstar Damian Lillard returned from a two-game absence for Thursday's elimination Game 6 against the Indiana Pacers.

Lillard was on fire to begin his first playoff series as a Buck. He averaged 32.3 points per game on 44.4% shooting from deep before suffering an Achilles injury late in Game 3.

Milwaukee struggled in Game 4 without Lillard and former MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo to fall to 3-1 against the Pacers, but a convincing home win in Game 5 allowed Lillard time to return.

Antetokounmpo remained out for Thursday's contest. He hasn't played since April 9 due to a calf injury.
