Damian Lillard hit 13-of-25 shots and three 3-pointers for 34 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists and a steal in Tuesday's 120-113 overtime loss to the Pistons.
Lillard was fantastic tonight, while backcourt teammate C.J. McCollum also came through with 25 points and four 3-pointers on 10-of-17 shooting. The duo combined for 10 turnovers, which was ultimately their undoing in the overtime loss. Feb 28 - 11:09 PM

Damian Lillard scored 33 points during a 112-103 win over the Magic on Thursday, adding five rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

It was Lillard time late in the game with Lillard scoring 24 points in the second half, including 17 points in the fourth quarter. This was Lillard's 40th game with at least 30 points in the last two seasons, which ranks sixth in the NBA in that span (Harden, Curry, Cousins, Durant and Westbrook). So far the loss of Mason Plumlee, one of the league's best screeners and low-post passers, hasn't hurt Dame.

Damian Lillard hit 8-of-20 shots, two 3-pointers and 10-of-11 free throws for 28 points, six rebounds and seven assists in Thursday's 120-111 loss to the Celtics.

Lillard hung with Isaiah Thomas and had a good night, but the Blazers blew a 17-point lead and watched Thomas go off for 15 points in the fourth quarter, which isn't a rare feat these days.
Feb 10 - 1:14 AM

Damian Lillard (ankle) scored 29 points on 12-of-22 shooting in Tuesday's win over the Mavericks.

Needless to say, his ankle was fine. He logged 40 minutes and combined with C.J. McCollum to score 61 points. Lillard added six assists, five rebounds, two steals and five triples, and the only bad news for his owners is that the Blazers only have one more game this week on Thursday vs. the Celtics.
Feb 7 - 11:27 PM

Damian Lillard (ankle) will play on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

Lillard's owners were probably sweating when coach Terry Stotts said that he "assumed" Lillard would play, but they can breathe easy now that we have official confirmation. Lillard was originally probable, so the injury sounds pretty minor. We'll let you know how he fares after the game.
Feb 7 - 8:27 PM

Damian Lillard (sprained right ankle) is warming up to play on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

He's listed as probable and coach Terry Stotts said he "assumes" Lillard will play, but we are waiting for the official word after he tests out his ankle in warmups. We should have an update within the hour, but it sounds like he's good to go.
Feb 7 - 7:11 PM

Damian Lillard (sprained right ankle) is probable to play Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

Lillard said he sprained his ankle during the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Thunder, but he got up and down the floor during Monday's practice without issue and expects to play Tuesday. Owners can expect to get another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround, but we don't anticipate him to miss any time here.
Feb 6 - 2:43 PM

Damian Lillard scored 29 points on 9-of-22 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Thunder, adding seven boards, four 3-pointers, three assists, one steal, two blocks and one turnover in 36 minutes.

Lillard was also a perfect 7-of-7 from the charity stripe, and this was a nice bounce-back performance following Friday's 13-point outing in which he went just 4-of-20 from the field. Lillard has been in a bit of a shooting rut over the past month, connecting on just 40.3 percent of his attempts, but he should be able to turn things around after the break. He's a buy-low candidate.
Feb 5 - 5:57 PM

Damian Lillard was held to 13 points on 4-of-20 shooting in Friday's loss to the Mavericks.

He had a chance to tie the game, but took an ill-advised triple with Seth Curry in his face with plenty of time left on the clock. Lillard added nine rebounds, six assists, one triple and one block in 38 minutes, but expect a better performance on Sunday vs. the Thunder -- OKC has been pretty generous to opposing point guards this season.
Feb 4 - 1:55 AM

Damian Lillard scored 27 points to lead the Blazers to a 115-98 win over the Hornets on Tuesday.

The Blazers have now beat the Hornets nine times in a row in Portland and Lillard has scored 20+ points in all 10 career meetings with Charlotte. He shot 10-of-18 from the field and added four boards, four assists, one steal and two triples in 31 minutes, and he also hit all five of his free throws. The Blazers are suddenly hot again and are closing the gap on the eighth-seeded Nuggets, winning four out of their last five games.
Feb 1 - 12:25 AM

Damian Lillard was relatively quiet in 36 minutes vs. the Warriors on Sunday, making 6-of-14 shots to finish with 19 points, eight assists and two rebounds in 36 minutes.

The Blazers fell into a huge hole early, went on a 20-2 run to close to within three points by halftime, but ultimately fell at home 113-111. Lillard added two 3-pointers and one steal, and it's still a disappointing night for fantasy owners since Steph Curry (illness) wasn't playing. Lillard gets three games next week, vs. the Hornets, Mavericks and Thunder.
Jan 30 - 12:13 AM

Damian Lillard scored 33 points (9-of-12 FGs, 10-of-11 FTs) to lead the Blazers to a 112-109 win over the Grizzlies on Friday.

He was an All-Star snub for the second straight season and took out his anger on the Grizzlies tonight, helping his team win their third straight game for the first time since Dec. 5. He scored 15 of his 33 points in final quarter (including 13 straight) and also added six assists and five boards in 40 minutes. "Obviously Dame carried us," coach Terry Stotts said. "He hasn't had a stretch like that in a while." His fantasy owners will be hoping that the All-Star snub will give him some added motivation down the stretch.

Damian Lillard can't see himself leaving the Trail Blazers.

"I’m happy with the situation that I’m in, and my family is happy with the situation and where we’re living," said Lillard. "It’s a place where I’d want to play my entire career." Lillard is playing in a smaller market in Portland, but that's not something he takes issue with. As for fantasy hoops, he's been somewhat struggling over the past six, chipping in just 3.8 assists per game while shooting 41.5 percent from the field, so now would be a good time to float out some buy-low offers as his next hot streak is assuredly right around the corner.

Damian Lillard scored 30 points in a 93-92 loss to the 76ers on Friday, adding five rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He was cooking early with 16 points in the first quarter. Lillard really needed a big scoring game with the downward trend in that department all season. In October he averaged 35.0 points per game in three outings, he had 27.0 in November, 25.1 in December, and just 21.7 in his previous January games. A big reason why is he's seen his free throw rate go down with fewer shots in the lane, too. All that said, we still like Dame to get hot in the near future.
Jan 20 - 10:42 PM

Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum had identical 7-of-18 shooting performances on Wednesday, with Lillard finishing with 21 points, seven boards, six assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.

Lillard and McCollum are both in the top-15 for scoring this season, and tonight they joined Kevin Durant and Steph Curry as the only teammate tandem with 1,000 points on the season. The Blazers have fallen on hard times lately, and they're way behind their record at the same point last year, but fortunately that doesn't matter for fantasy owners.
