Rockets fans will probably never doubt Lillard, but this wasn't even his best game as a scorer. His assists have been the story lately and Lillard has put up three consecutive double-doubles for the first time in his NBA career. Yes, he should have made the All-Star Team. Feb 6 - 8:28 PM

Damian Lillard scored 27 points with five rebounds, 11 assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday during a 110-103 loss.

The assists have been really nice for Lillard with three double-digit dime games in his last five. The should-be All-Star's team losing this one drops them out of the eighth seed with Utah moving up. It'll be interesting to see what the Blazers do at the deadline, but it won't affect Lillard.
Feb 5 - 1:23 AM

Damian Lillard scored 14 points with 12 assists, five boards and three turnovers in Tuesday's win over the Bucks.

C.J. McCollum carried the Blazers with 30 points, so Lillard was happy to be the facilitator and he was able to record his tenth double-double of the season. Lillard and McCollum have the Blazers right in the middle of the playoff race, and they also became one of three pairs of teammates to have 1,000 points each along with Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan of Toronto and Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson of the Warriors.
Feb 3 - 12:48 AM

Damian Lillard scored a game-high 22 points against the Hornets on Friday during a 109-91 win, adding five rebounds, six assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.

Lillard is in the top 10 for points, assists and treys while the Blazers are knocking on the door of the eighth seed, but he did not get an All-Star bid. He also had a throw-down on Tyler Hansbrough (in link below). He's sitting on top-15 value in his last 10.
Jan 30 - 2:29 AM

Damian Lillard matched his career high with 13 assists in Tuesday's 112-97 win over the Kings, finishing with 15 points, five boards, one block and one 3-pointer.

He shot just 5-of-16 from the field and had four turnovers, but he gets a pass because he erupted for 36 points in Saturday's win over the Lakers. The Blazers have now won six out of their last eight games and moved ahead of the Kings for the eighth spot in the Western Conference playoff race. C.J. McCollum added 18 points, five assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.
Jan 27 - 1:03 AM

Damian Lillard broke out of his slump in Saturday's win over the Lakers, scoring 36 points on 14-of-19 shooting with five assists, one board and five 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

He was averaging just 16.0 points over his last three games on 41.3 percent shooting from the field, so it's safe to say that he is back. His owners can thank the Lakers for helping him break out of his slump, and he now has scored an average of 31.7 points against them in three appearances this season.
Jan 24 - 1:53 AM

Damian Lillard (personal) returned to practice on Friday.

He missed Thursday's practice and he'll be ready to roll against the Lakers on Saturday. Lillard could have a big game in a favorable matchup.
Jan 22 - 3:22 PM

Damian Lillard missed Thursday's practice to attend a funeral in Oakland.

The Blazers are off until Saturday vs. the Lakers, so it's extremely unlikely that he takes any time away from the team.
Jan 21 - 6:10 PM

Damian Lillard needed 22 shots to score 18 points vs. the Hawks on Wednesday, adding one 3-pointer, five rebounds and six assists in the Blazers' defeat.

He tied the game on a four-point play heading into the fourth quarter but that failed to get him cooking, and he finished just 8-of-22 from the field. The Blazers' volume-shooting All-Star is prone to some slumps but he'll inevitably finish the season with early-round value.
Jan 21 - 1:35 AM

Damian Lillard was left off the final competition for Team USA's 2016 Olympic roster, but isn't too concerned with the exclusion.

Lillard opted out of last summer's Team USA experience and thinks that might have hurt his chances this time around."Any time I go into a situation I want to have a real opportunity," he said. "If I'm going to invest myself in something, I want to have a real opportunity in that. Last time I did that, I felt the decision was already made before the decision was made. Whether I played good or bad, I felt like it didn't matter." While he won't be playing in the 2016 Olympics, Lillard continues to be one of the better point guards in the league and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues as long as he's healthy.
Jan 19 - 10:18 AM

Damian Lillard scored 16 points in Monday's win over the Wizards, adding six assists, two boards and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He was pretty quiet in this one and shot just 7-of-16 from the field, but the Blazers have now won four out of their last five games. Their only loss in that stretch came on Saturday vs. the 76ers in which Lillard was held to just 14 points on 4-of-18 shooting. He should get it going again soon, so there is no need for his owners to be concerned. On a side note, Lillard and C.J. McCollum joined Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson as the only backcourt to hit over 100 3-pointers this season.
Jan 18 - 4:50 PM

Damian Lillard scored 33 points during a 116-104 win against the Nets on Friday, adding three rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

The Nets current problems with a lack of assets can be traced back to the Nets foolishly acquiring Gerald Wallace for a first-round pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Well, that pick turned out to be Damian Lillard. Anyway, Lillard is cooking with gas over his last four, averaging 31.3 points, 5.0 boards, 9.8 dimes, 1.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 5.0 treys on 50.6 percent from the field. That makes him the No. 1 guy in standard leagues over that span.
Jan 15 - 11:36 PM

Damian Lillard scored a game-high 21 points during a 99-85 win over the Jazz on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in just 29 minutes.

It's his sixth 20-plus points, 10-plus dimes game of the season and his career-high eighth double-double of the year. Lillard is rolling in his last four games, averaging 28.0 points, 6.0 boards, 9.5 assists, 2.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 5.5 treys. After a somewhat disappointing start to his season, there is plenty of time for him to live up to his ADP as a possible top-10 player going forward.
Jan 14 - 1:36 AM

Blazers coach Terry Stotts praised Damian Lillard for his performance in Sunday's win over the Thunder.

"That was quite a performance by [Lillard] in those two minutes," Stotts said. "We were battling the whole game and he came up big. I mean, he hit five threes in two minutes. You don't see that very often." Lillard scored 17 of his 31 points in the final 3:07 of the game, so we're guessing that his foot must be feeling a whole lot better. The guard finished with 31 points, seven rebounds, nine assists and two steals.
Jan 11 - 9:28 AM

Damian Lillard tied his career high with eight 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing a comeback win vs. the Thunder with 31 points, seven rebounds, nine assists and two steals.

After blowing up for 40 points and 10 assists on Friday, Lillard said, "I'm a confident basketball player and coming off the [plantar fasciitis] injury, I knew I would get it going eventually." That's an understatement. He dropped 17 points in a scintillating fourth quarter performance tonight, leading a 20-7 run to erase a big deficit and snap the Blazers' three-game losing streak. He'll get a few days of well-deserved rest before squaring off with the Jazz on Wednesday.
