The Portland Trail Blazers (31-25) are coming off back-to-back wins, with the most recent victory coming against the Sacramento Kings on Friday night, 118-100. The Blazers are now back home to host the Utah Jazz (27-28) on Sunday night.
In Friday’s win, it was all about Damian Lillard. Lillard scored 50 points in just three quarters of play. He now joins teammate CJ McCollum and Warriors guard Klay Thompson as the only players in NBA history to score 50 points in under 30 minutes of action. Lillard went 16-of-26 from the floor and that included going 8-of-13 from deep. He also had six assists.
Reaching the 50-point milestone on Friday was the fourth time in Lillard's career.
Moe Harkless got his third consecutive start on Friday and vs. the Kings, he had 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting.
