|Damian Lillard: Big scoring not enough for victory|
Lillard chipped in 32 points (10-23 FG, 5-14 3Pt, 7-10 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one steal over 37 minutes during Wednesday's 120-105 loss to Utah.
The Scoop: Lillard tied with Norman Powell for team high-scoring honors in the loss, but only one other Portland player notched a double-digit point total. Lillard did his best to carry the shorthanded and struggling Blazers, draining five three-pointers and exceeding the 30-point mark for the fourth time in his past five contests. The star point guard has overcome a relatively slow start to the campaign, raising his scoring average to 24.2 points per game. That mark stood at just 18.5 points per contest through his first 10 games.
