Damian Lillard led the Blazers with 24 points on 7-of-16 shooting with a 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks on Thursday.
Lillard got most of it going in the second half to pull away from an atrocious Suns team, but C.J. McCollum (20 points on 8-of-15 shooting with four triples, three rebounds, two assists and a steal) did most of the heavy lifting in the first half to keep the Blazers afloat. Jusuf Nurkic (16 points on 4-of-13 shooting with nine rebounds, an assist and a block) also turned in a productive line but that was expected against the Suns without Richaun Holmes (foot) or Deandre Ayton (ankle).
