Damian Lillard dropped in 39 points on 11-of-17 shooting Sunday, to go with six triples, five boards, eight dimes, one steal and three turnovers across 35 minutes in a 116-113 win over the Knicks.
Daddy Dame was red hot to start this one, scoring 18 points without missing through the first half of action, and he didn't miss his first shot until midway through the third quarter. He drilled his 1,834 career 3-pointer in this one, which put him past Chauncey Billups for the No. 16 spot on the all-time list, and by going 10-of-10 at the charity stripe tonight he broke his own franchise record with 65 straight makes at the line. He could realistically average close to 40 points a game over the coming weeks while C.J. McCollum (foot) is sidelined. Yesterday 11:08 pm (EST)
