PORTLAND, Ore. – Former Weber State and current Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard dropped a new career-high in points and set a new Blazers franchise record in a win over the Golden State Warriors.

Lillard added 10 rebounds, 7 assists, and a steal in 45 minutes of play.

Lillard entered the game as the No. 6 in scoring among NBA players with an average of 27.1 points per contest.

The Blazers point guard played for the Weber State Wildcats from 2008-2012. He was drafted by Portland with the 6th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.
