Damian Lillard scored 30 points on 10-of-21 shooting (4-of-12 3PTs, 6-of-9 FTs) with four rebounds and five assists as the Blazers won a big game against the Jazz on Sunday.
Lillard became the first Blazer since Clyde Drexler to score 30 or more points in four straight games. C.J. McCollum scored 31 points on 11-of-21 shooting (4-of-6 3PTs, 5-of-6 FTs) with one rebound, three assists, one steal and two blocks, and Mason Plumlee was effective with nine points, nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in the win. The Blazers haven’t faced any real adversity this season and if that holds up, they’re as likely as any of the non-contenders to make the playoffs.
