Damian Lillard has been named Western Conference Player of the week. (Jan 19th-25th 2020) He averaged 52.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 9.3 assists per game during the week, amassing 61, 47, and 50 point games.

Lillard became the only Blazer to ever score three 40+ point games in a row. The only Blazer to put together three 50+ point games in a season. The only player besides Stephen Curry to make 8+ three pointers three games in a row. Not to mention he joins Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, and James Harden as the only six players in NBA history to have three 60 point games. He joins the above as well as Pete Maravich and Devin Booker as the only players who have scored 108+ combined points in back to back games.

No Blazer has ever scored 100+ points in back to back games. Lillard also has the franchise high in points, at 61, surpassing his record of 60 earlier this season against the Nets.

Lillard has made a solid case towards being the best Blazer of all time.

    He has a tremendous run . We should appreciate his loyalty, leadership and goals. Dame needs a team with salty desire. Whiteside picked up his game and Ariza has been a catalyst for this team.
