Michael Wagaman of the Associated Press passed along comments from Lillard about why he didn't ask head coach Terry Stotts for more playing time. It was Lillard's fourth 50-point game of his career, and he needed only 29 minutes to do it.

"I saw we were up 20, and I was like, 'OK, if we keep this lead, there's really no reason to go back in there, '" he said. "I feel like that's bad karma". He was 10 of 10 at the free-throw line.

The Kings closed to within one point in the third quarter before Lillard turned on the offense again.

Lillard dropped 50 points on the Kings in just three quarters of action, as he didn't need to play the final period with the game already well in hand. Last week, CJ McCollum accomplished the exact same feat - 50 points, 29 minutes, and incredible efficiency. "The way he was shooting it, he knew he had a good feel tonight".

Portland's No. 2 scorer was Moe Harkless, who had 15 points. The Blazers were coming off an overtime win in Charlotte on Thursday that snapped a three-game losing streak. Lillard did have 14 30-point games this season before his incandescent shooting display on the road, one that propelled the Blazers to a second straight victory.
