Damian Lillard: Narrowly Misses Triple-Double
Update: Lillard nearly notched a triple-double Wednesday, scoring 17 points, doling out 11 assists (versus four turnovers), and grabbing eight rebounds in 38 minutes, as the Blazers royally defeated the Kings.

Recommendation: Lillard also supplied one steal and one block, while playing with a flare that led to numerous alley-oops for his teammates. The result was a season-high 31 dimes for the Blazers, including 19 on their 23 field goals made in the first half. He now has posted four double-digit assist performances this season, with two of them coming in the last four tilts. Greater comfort with his teammates is helping Lillard boast 7.5 assists per game in the month of December, as he displays more and more a veteran's mindset in a rookie's body of work.
