Lillard helps Portland blaze past Utah with a 51 point charge”

Damian Lillard scored 51 points against Utah on Saturday, which was wonderful.

Yes, the incendiary point guard's 51-point, 12-assist highlight reel of a game was a factor in the Blazers' 124-107 win. Currently, for a six-game stretch, Lillard is averaging an impressive 48.8 points. He additionally made 9 three-pointers, ending up being the initial gamer in the National Basketball Association background to standard 45 factors as well as 10 aids over a 6-game period. With nine more 3-pointers Saturday, his total of 49 surpassed Stephen Curry (46 in January 2019) for the most in National Basketball Association history over a six-game span. Portland's Carmelo Anthony scored 15 points after not travelling with the team for Friday's road game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Over this stretch, Lillard is averaging an insane 48.8 points while shooting 54.8 percent from the field, 57.0 percent from 3, and 92.3 percent from the foul line.

The Jazz crept within 94-88 on Mitchell's basket with 11:11 remaining before the Trail Blazers answered with a 16-4 spurt to move ahead by 18 with 6:17 left.

Half of Lillard's 12 assists Saturday - against only one turnover - went to center Hassan Whiteside, who had 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting and 21 rebounds while battling two-time reigning Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert. Nassir Little drained a 3-pointer to cap a 13-0 burst to give Portland a 91-73 lead with 2:44 remaining in the quarter.

Lillard's streak, which started with a career-high and franchise-record 61 points on January 20 against the Golden State Warriors, has also been record-setting from beyond the arc. Lillard scored 23 points in the half.
