Damian Lillard led the way in Portland’s 123-114 victory on Wednesday, scorching the Wolves for 31 points, four rebounds and six assists while shooting 9-of-17 from the field, 6-of-11 from deep and a perfect 7-of-7 from the line.
Lillard was named to the All-Star team after a few years of being snubbed and has been on quite the roll since returning from his leg injury. He’s scored 20-plus in every game since then and now has five straight of 25 or more, including three 31-point outings. Dame is locked in as one of the most reliable fantasy assets yet again, even if his leg problems ding his iron man reputation. Look for him to finish right around the first-second round turn, as usual.
