Wade Baldwin signed; Damian Lillard wins Player of the Week

Evan Turner

In the Eastern Conference, guard #Demar Derozan of the Toronto Raptors was named Player of the Week for the second straight week.

It's the second Western Conference Player of the Week honor for Lillard this season.

Two victories over the defending champs in a one month span plus the longest active winning streak in the National Basketball Association has the Blazers all over the news. He appeared in 33 games during his rookie campaign, registering 3.2 point across 12.3 minutes per outing while making 31.3 percent of his field-goal attempts. He shot 34-75 (45.3 percent) from the field, 6-18 (33.3 percent) from three-point territory, and 25-30 (83.3 percent) from the free throw line. The Jazz won 112-103, in overtime. He went 16-28 from the field and a flawless 8-8 from the charity stripe on his way to finishing with 42 points, all of which were needed in the tight victory. DeRozan then scored 23 points, including the go-ahead basket March 9 (Mar. 10, PHL time) vs. Houston, snapping the Rockets' 17-game winning streak.

"The Trail Blazers (40-26) went 3-0 on the week with victories over the Lakers, Knicks and Warriors, extending the longest active win streak in the league to nine games". Led by Lillard, they prevailed in all three of their games last week.

Sparkling performances by Babar Azam (61 off 49) and Lendl Simmons (55 off 39) led Kings to score a competitive total. The result means Karachi Kings remain in third position with nine points, while Lahore remain rooted to the bottom.

Lillard averaged 34.7 points per game over that stretch, shooting almost 47% from the field and 56.3% from 3-point range.

The Heat used an 18-2 run to start the fourth quarter to trim a 19-point deficit to three, but Lillard took charge for the Blazers, just as he has throughout the winning streak. He followed that performance with 37 points in the first three quarters against NY on March 6 (Mar. 7, PHL time), passing Cliff Robinson for fourth place on the franchise scoring list in the process.

Lillard collected 32 points and 10 assists while Nurkic contributed 27 points and 16 rebounds as the Trail Blazers ran their winning streak to 10 games. Of course, the 21-year-old also guarded Ed Davis, Zach Collins and Al-Farouq Aminu at times throughout the contest.
