Damian Lillard was all of the superlatives in Friday’s loss to the Raptors, scoring 50 points on 16-of-28 shooting (6-of-13 3PTs, 12-of-13 FTs) with three rebounds and five assists.
Lillard now owns two of the eight 50-point performances in franchise history and they’ve both come this season. The NBA looks like they’re paying for leaving him off the All Star team, which was patently ridiculous when former teammate LaMarcus Aldridge got the nod instead. Lillard has now made it back to his ADP in 8-cat leagues with a No. 12 ranking when on the floor, and in 9-cat leagues he is at No. 17 and rising.
