Damian Lillard was terrific yet again from inside the arc on Sunday night, shooting 11-of-17 from the field for 32 points with two boards, five assists and five 3-pointers in just 30 minutes.
He killed the Jazz on the short- and mid-range shots on Friday night and did it again tonight. LaMarcus Aldridge (groin) not being on the floor has created a lot of space and Lillard is quick enough to exploit that hole in the defense with the best of them. He's going to eat until Aldridge comes back.

Damian Lillard and Trey Burke won the Taco Bell Skills Challenge on Saturday night.
They earned the victory over Victor Oladipo and Michael Carter-Williams by 0.1 seconds in the championship round. The NBA decided to run it as a relay this year and it almost cost Lillard after he had a flawless run in the semifinal while Trey Burke struggled. The course also eliminated the bounce pass obstacle, which seems a little silly because of how executing a bounce pass to a cutter takes some skill on the court. Lillard will go for the trifecta in the two following events on Saturday.
