Nov. 3 9:59 PM PT10:59 PM MT11:59 PM CT12:59 AM ET4:59 GMT12:59 9:59 PM MST11:59 PM EST8:59 UAE05:590:59 ET10:59 PM CTNaN:� - Damian Lillard scored 32 points Thursday on 8-of-18 shooting as the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 113-110.

Analysis: Lillard matched the most 3-point attempts of his career and didn't hit many, though he has drained at least three in three consecutive games. His field-goal attempts have increased in five straight games as it becomes increasingly clear there isn't much offensive firepower around him in Portland, so Lillard should put up very big point totals, though his shooting percentages could suffer.

Oct. 25 11:25 PM PT12:25 AM MT1:25 AM CT2:25 AM ET6:25 GMT14:25 11:25 PM MST1:25 AM EST10:25 UAE08:252:25 ET1:25 AM CTNaN:� - Damian Lillard scored 13 points Tuesday, going 3 of 16 from the field, as the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 103-93.

Analysis: Lillard missed his first nine shots and didn't score at all in the first half before salvaging what would be considered a decent fantasy night for most players. Another shaky shooting effort could be in store for the high-scoring guard in Thursday's meeting with the Clippers, who rank second in the league in field goal percentage defense so far.
