Lillard, Blazers continue playoff push vs. Clippers

The Portland Trail Blazers will attempt to continue their surge for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference on Saturday afternoon when they face the Los Angeles Clippers near Orlando.

Both clubs recorded wins Thursday. But as far as individual performances, Damian Lillard delivered in impressive fashion, scoring 45 points, recording 12 assists and leading the Trail Blazers past the Denver Nuggets 125-115. Lillard connected on 13 of 21 shots, including 11 of 18 3-pointers. The 3-pointers made equaled Lillard's club record.

Lillard struggled offensively in Portland's previous three contests but not this time.
