Damian Lilliard scored a game-high 30 points during a 115-107 loss to the Bucks on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, six assists and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He has taken great care of the ball lately with just 1.3 turnovers per game over his last four. He's also been able to increase his assist average in each of those four with at least six -- he came in averaging 5.6 per game tonight. He also made 9-of-9 from the line to get him to 89.5 percent and make him an elite option in that category. Lillard is sitting pretty as a top-10 option in standard leagues.
Dec 7 - 11:20 PM

Damian Lillard scored 30 points with seven assists in Monday's 112-110 win over the Bulls.

The Blazers are suddenly hot again with three straight wins over the Pacers, Heat and now the Bulls. Lillard hit 11-of-24 shots from the field and 5-of-5 from the line with four rebounds, two steals, two blocks and three triples in one of the lines of the night. He will draw a matchup with Matthew Dellavedova and the Bucks on Wednesday.
Dec 5 - 11:50 PM

Damian Lillard scored 19 points during a 99-92 win over the Heat on Saturday, adding four rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He buried his 2,500th field goal in his career during this game to be the third-fastest Blazer to do so (Petrie, Wicks). Lillard did not shoot the ball well in this game, making just 6-of-19 from the field. He was really heating up before this game, so expect a better line against the Bulls on Monday.

Dec 4 - 1:39 AM

Damian Lillard scored 28 points during a 131-109 win over the Pacers on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, 10 assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He's back after a brief slump with his fourth consecutive game with at least 27 points. Lillard's 564 points to start the season are the most by any Blazer in the first 20 games of a season. He's also the first player with at least 28 points, 10 dimes and four steals in a game this season. Lillard is back to posting first-round value on the season for his standard league owners.
Dec 1 - 1:41 AM

Damian Lillard scored 27 points with 11 assists, four rebounds, one block and three triples in a 119-104 win over the Pelicans on Friday.

The Blazers had lost five of their previous six games, so they needed this win in the worst way. Lillard hit 9-of-17 shots from the field and 6-of-7 from the line with just one turnover. He was coming off a 40-point effort vs. the Cavs with 11 dimes and five treys, so his mini-slump is clearly behind him. He gets the Rockets on Sunday in what should be a shootout.
Nov 26 - 1:04 AM

Damian Lillard handed out a season-high 11 assists against the Cavs during a 137-125 loss on Wednesday, adding 40 points, seven rebounds and five 3-pointers.

It's one of the quietest 40-point games of the year with Lillard getting overshadowed by LeBron James' triple-double and Kevin Love's 34-point first quarter. Dame is also the first Blazer with at least 40 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds since Clyde Drexler in 1992. After a brief slump in the past week, Lillard should get hot in no time.
Nov 23 - 11:09 PM

Damian Lillard scored 22 points with six assists, five rebounds, two steals, two treys and five turnovers in 35 minutes in a loss to the Knicks on Tuesday.

Lillard hit 8-of-18 from the field and connected on all four free throws. The Blazers have lost four out of their last five games with their only win coming against the Nets, and Lillard has cooled off since his hot start with averages of 20.8 points, 4.4 assists, 4.4 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 1.6 treys and 3.2 turnovers on 40.0 percent shooting in that span. Things won't get any easier on Wednesday against the Cavaliers.
Nov 22 - 11:05 PM

Damian Lillard scored 18 points on 8-of-14 shooting Sunday, to go with four boards, five assists, one steal, one block, two turnovers and zero 3-pointers through 28 minutes of action.

This was just the second time this season that Lillard had failed to connect on a 3-point attempt, but Portland also didn't really need him that much with the game essentially being decided by the conclusion of the third quarter and C.J. McCollum going bonkers. Lillard's been a steady top-15 guy on the year, and owners can expect him to resume his stat stuffing ways with a favorable matchup against the Knicks on Tuesday.
Nov 20 - 6:39 PM

Damian Lillard scored 27 points on 8-of-24 shooting with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and four treys in a loss to the Pelicans on Friday.

"We kind of suck right now," Lillard said on Thursday. "We’re usually a pretty good offensive team, we’ve been bad on offense and bad on defense. We’re trying hard but we’re not always making the smartest plays, sometimes letting the offensive end effect the defensive end. It’s not good enough. We’re not very good right now." The Blazers have now lost three games in a row and Lillard has also slowed down, averaging 21.3 points over his last three after eclipsing the 30-point mark in seven of his first 11 games.
Nov 18 - 11:53 PM

Damian Lillard, coming off a 32-point game, hit just 7-of-22 shots for 19 points, five rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's ugly loss to the Bulls.

Lillard is one of the league's top point guards, but struggled against the Clippers last Wednesday and again against the Bulls tonight. He'll be fine. C.J. McCollum is in the same boat, and hit just 7-of-17 shots and three 3-pointers for 17 points, four rebounds, four assists and a steal tonight. The Blazers have one of the most exciting fantasy backcourts in the league and they'll surely bounce back against the Rockets on Thursday.
Nov 16 - 12:33 AM

Damian Lillard made a career-high 15 free throws on Sunday en route to a game-high 32 points, adding eight boards, six assists, four steals, three 3-pointers and just one turnover.

Lillard went 7-of-18 from the field but he was a perfect 15-of-15 from the line, becoming the sixth player in Blazers history to make at least 15 free throws without a miss. He's crushing it this season with top-10 value in virtually all fantasy formats, averaging 30.7 points, 2.8 threes, 5.0 boards, 4.6 assists, 0.9 steals and solid percentages with heavy volumes.
Nov 14 - 12:29 AM

Damian Lillard kept his foot on the gas pedal during a 122-120 overtime win over the Kings on Friday, scoring 36 points with one rebound, seven assists and five 3-pointers.

He's in some kind of groove this year, posting a 32.5 usage rate and a 64.8 true shooting percentage. As a reference point to just how good those two numbers are, Stephen Curry last season is the only player ever to post at least a 32 usage rate and a 64 true shooting percentage and qualify for scoring on the year -- James Harden is also doing it so far this year. Lillard's growth as an offensive weapon is off the charts.
Nov 12 - 3:04 AM

Damian Lillard made just 1-of-10 from the field for eight points in a 111-80 defeat to the Clippers on Wednesday, adding one rebound, one assist and three turnovers in 28 minutes.

It wasn't Lillard Time. This dud snapped his streak of 65 consecutive games with double-digit scoring while only Shabazz Napier was in double-digit scoring at 11. Lillard's rough night knocked him down to the No. 5 scorer at 30.0 points per game on the season. He's always struggled against Chris Paul, so his fantasy owners shouldn't draw any conclusions.
Nov 10 - 2:40 AM

Damian Lillard scored 38 points with five rebounds, three assists, three triples and four turnovers in 37 minutes in a 124-121 win over the Suns on Tuesday.

He injured the knuckle of his left index finger during Sunday's game and had some swelling, but obviously it wasn't an issue tonight. Lillard shot 12-of-23 from the field and 11-of-12 from the line, and he's now been able to get to the line at least 10 times in five straight games. He's on a tear right now and finished this game in style, notching 22 of his 38 points in the fourth quarter. He's on a tear right now and was putting up 32.0 points per game prior to Tuesday.
