Damian Lillard led the Blazers with 44 points, eight assists, three rebounds and two steals in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 123-117 win vs. the Warriors.
Lillard sank 14-of-25 field goals and 12-of-12 free throws, with a 4-of-11 mark from downtown. He's been absurdly good lately and has scored 133 points over the past three games, which shatters the Blazers' previous franchise record. He's attempted double-digit free throws in each of those games, and owners should hope he maintains such aggression on the other side of the All-Star break. Feb 15 - 1:49 AM

Damian Lillard followed up Friday's huge game with 39 points on Sunday, making 12-of-25 FGs and 13-of-13 FTs with three rebounds, two 3-pointers, one assist and one block.

When asked before the game how he'd follow-up his 50-point eruption, Lillard replied, "It’s simple. See what [I have] left." Lillard's tank was full tonight but it wasn't enough to avoid a lopsided home loss, and Portland will try to regroup vs. the Warriors on Wednesday. After that, they're off until Feb. 23.
Feb 11 - 11:57 PM

Damian Lillard finished Friday's 118-100 win at Sacramento with 50 points on 16-of-26 shooting across 29 minutes.

Lillard actually had 50 points through three quarters and obviously did not score in the final quarter, as he was not needed with the Blazers leading by 18 points through 36 minutes. He ended up 8-of-13 from behind the 3-point line while going a perfect 10-of-10 at the free-throw line, and he picked up six assists with three steals and just two turnovers with a plus-18 rating. The 50 points were his most since his final regular season game last April 8 against Utah when he dropped 59.
Feb 10 - 2:13 AM

Damian Lillard went 6-of-22 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line on his way to 18 points over 42 minutes in Thursday's overtime win over the Hornets.

Lillard struggled to get his shot to drop as he was harassed by Kemba Walker all night long, but he still came through with three triples, four boards, eight dimes and one steal in the 109-103 win. The Blazers get a much more favorable matchup against the Kings tomorrow, so we'd expect Dame to come through with a more efficient outing in that one.
Feb 9 - 1:30 AM

Damian Lillard went 6-of-19 from the field and 7-of-8 from the stripe on his way to 21 points, nine assists, six rebounds, two 3-pointers, one block and two turnovers in 37 minutes on Sunday.

Lillard struggled to get his shot to drop in this one, but he still found a way to be effective by getting to the line and setting up his teammates for open looks. The Celtics are one of the best teams in the league at defending the point guard position, so it’s not exactly shocking that Lillard struggled today, but we’d expect a much more efficient outing on Monday with a much more favorable matchup against the Pistons.
Feb 4 - 3:01 PM

Damian Lillard finished with 32 points over 37 minutes in Friday's loss at Toronto.

Lillard also chipped in with 10 assists, three rebounds and a blocked shot while hitting 11-of-18 from the field, 3-of-7 from behind the arc, and 7-of-8 from the free-throw stripe. He is just one of eight players all-time with 10,000 points and 2,500 assists in their first six seasons joining Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Larry Bird, Nate Archibald, Peter Maravich, Dave Bing and Oscar Robertson. There's something about the Raptors he likes, as he also went for 36 points in the first meetings back on Oct. 30 in a game his team only scored 85.
Feb 2 - 10:12 PM

Damian Lillard scored 28 points vs. the Clippers on Tuesday, hitting 6-of-13 shots in 36 minutes.

Lillard also finished a perfect 11-of-11 from the charity stripe, adding seven assists, four rebounds, three steals, one block and five triples. He's been a monster since he returned from his injury and has now scored 25+ points in seven straight games. He should be able to make it eight straight on Wednesday vs. the Bulls.
Jan 31 - 1:34 AM

Damian Lillard scored 29 points in Friday's 107-93 win over the Mavericks, adding three rebounds, three assists, three triples and four turnovers in 36 minutes.

It was a strange night for Lillard, as he didn't score until 3:54 left in the first half. We later learned that he was battling an upset stomach before the game due to something he ate, but he looked fine in the second half. The All-Star PG finished 9-of-18 from the field and 8-of-11 from the line, and now he has several days off to rest up before Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers. We're leaving him off the injury report.
Jan 27 - 12:40 AM

Damian Lillard scored 31 points with four rebounds, six assists and six 3-pointers during a 123-114 win over the Wolves on Wednesday.

He was on fire to start the third quarter with 13 points in that frame as the Blazers erupted for 43 points to put this game out of reach. Lillard has been on serious cruise control since returning from injury with at least 21 points and six dimes in each of his last eight games. There's a reason he made the All-Star team and his owners should expect top-10 value out of one of the league's best scorers.
Jan 25 - 12:43 AM

Damian Lillard recently met with Blazers owner Paul Allen to "gather an understanding of the organization's direction," according to Chris Hayes of ESPN.

Lillard and Allen met for approximately one hour in Allen's office last Thursday. Per the ESPN report, Allen feared that Lillard might demand a trade, but no such request was made. However, Lillard let it be known that he "has championship aspirations and wanted to fulfill those lofty goals during the remaining years of his prime window." With plenty of drama throughout the NBA, this is another storyline to keep an eye on.

Jan 23 - 9:32 AM

Damian Lillard scored 25 points on Monday vs. the Nuggets, hitting 10-of-18 shots and 1-of-2 free throws in 38 minutes.

The Western Conference Player of the Week added eight assists, two rebounds and four triples, but Portland's three-game winning streak came to an end. Lillard's injuries appear to be behind him and he's been on fire lately, scoring 25+ points in four straight games. It'll be a huge upset if he's not named to the All-Star team on Tuesday.
Jan 23 - 12:42 AM

Damian Lillard made 10-of-15 from the field for 31 points during a 117-108 win over the Mavs on Saturday, adding five rebounds, nine assists and seven 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He was rolling to start this game, making all nine of his first shots including all seven of those treys. That's not really a surprise because Lillard is en fuego since returning from injury, averaging 26.8 points, 4.7 boards, 8.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 3.0 treys on 50.5 percent from the field and 89.7 percent from the line. The Blazers are right in the thick of the playoff race and Dame's owners can expect him to suit up for every game he can as a top-10 player in standard leagues.
Jan 21 - 1:28 AM

Damian Lillard scored a game-high 26 points during a 100-86 win over the Pacers on Thursday, adding five rebounds, eight assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

It's safe to say he's back as he's driving more and getting to the line more frequently, too. Since his return on Jan. 10, Lillard averaged 26.0 points, 4.6 boards, 7.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.2 treys on 47.8 percent from the field and 88.6 percent from the line -- 7.0 attempts per game from the charity stripe, too. His fantasy owners can probably expect him to flirt with top-10 value the rest of the way, especially with the Blazers in the thick of the playoff race.
Jan 19 - 12:53 AM

Damian Lillard said his calf isn't 100 percent, but he believes he's getting closer.

"When I came back I knew that it would take some time just to be able to move comfortably," Lillard said after Tuesday's win vs. the Suns. "The last few games each game it's gotten better. In Minnesota [on Sunday], I just felt good moving around. Tonight, I just felt good. I felt almost normal at times." He certainly hasn't looked unhealthy since returning to action, putting up 26.0 points per game in his last four outings with at least seven dimes in each.

Jan 18 - 9:36 AM

Damian Lillard hit 11-of-19 shots and four 3-pointers for 31 points, five rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 36 minutes of Tuesday's 118-111 win over the Suns.

Devin Booker stole the headlines with his 43-point performance, but despite the final score, the Blazers were in control of this game throughout, with Lillard and C.J. McCollum (27 points, 3 steals, 2 blocks, 6 3-pointers) leading the charge. Lillard's been back from his calf injury for four games and hasn't missed a beat, going off for 26 points, 7.8 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.3 3-pointers in those four games.
