Lillard grazed a triple-double Tuesday against the Bulls, posting 19 points (4-22 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 11-13 FT), 10 rebounds, eight assists, and one block in 40 minutes. Lillard went ice cold from the field, but it didn't stop him from putting up numbers across the board. Owners can look forward to a better shooting performance moving forward, but can take his 11-for-13 showing from the line as a consolation prize.
Lillard logged 30 points (12-25 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, and one block in 37 minutes during the Blazers' 107-93 win versus the Lakers on Sunday. Lillard turned the ball over only twice, and continues to post career-best numbers in his first season as the Blazers' undisputed head honcho. He's not known for racking up the defensive statistics, but the lowly Lakers allowed him to make an impact on that end as well on Sunday. The Blazers are back in action on Tuesday versus the Bulls.
Lillard posted a game-high 27 points (10-25 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, and a steal over 38 minues in Friday's 102-91 victory over the Clippers. Lillard once again unsurprisingly spearheaded the Blazers' offense, and his knack for some timely three-pointers helped insure the victory. Although he only drained four out 10 attempts from beyond the arc Friday, each one was at key moments in the fourth quarter, including the final one of the night that extended Portland's lead to an insurmountable 100-87. Lillard continues to play heavy minutes nightly and produce with them, coming in at under 20 points in only one of the Blazers' 14 contests so far this season.
Lillard scored a team-high 23 points (9-25 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT) with eight rebounds, five assists and a steal in 37 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Hornets. Once again he was nearly a one-man show for the Blazers, as only two of his teammates even scored in double digits. Lillard has now scored 20 or more points 10 of 11 games to begin the season.
Lillard (thumb) will play Friday with a bandage on his right thumb, Casey Holdahl of the Blazers official site reports. He had planned on attempting to play without anything on his hand, but now it sounds like he will need to protect the thumb during Friday's game. This should help protect against re-injuring the thumb, but it could bother him slightly when dribbling/shooting.
