Damian Lillard…2,000 points…and 500 assists in a single season.
It’s 6’-3 ‘ guard Damian Lillard, now becoming the first Trail Blazer in franchise history to record these two feats in a single season, who last night led Portland on a 14-3 run to end the second quarter, capped up a steal turned first-half buzzer beater, on the way to pulling away from the Memphis Grizzlies 116-86. The game was home in front of a sellout crowd of 19,608 Wednesday night at the Moda Center, as the Blazers get closer to the NBA Playoffs.
The Trail Blazers are now 50-28 overall and 30-9 at home this season. Portland has now reached the 50-win mark for the 14th time in franchise history and for the first time since the 2014-15 campaign.
Evan Turner recorded his second consecutive triple-double and the fifth of his career, finish-ing with 13 points (6-7 FG, 1-1 3-PT), and season highs of 12 rebounds and 11 assists.
