Lillard recorded 40 points (11-23 FG, 6-15 3PT, 12-12 FT), one rebound, 13 assists and three steals in 42 minutes in the 132-126 win over Sacramento on Wednesday.
Lillard had an incredible performance to push the Trail Blazers in the win Wednesday. The guard had started slow in the first half, but by the time the second half came along, he was a force to be reckoned with. Lillard set a new season high in both points and assists. In what was a game of offense, Lillard showed off his elite skills and why he is the main man in Portland. He will always be a viable option, until he somehow loses his shooting and playmaking abilities.
