Portland Trail Blazers superstar point guard Damian Lillard went on a tear again on Sunday, as he led his squad to a hard-fought victory against a Jimmy Butler-less Miami Heat squad. Lillard led all scorers with 33 points on 11-of-23 shooting from the field and 5-of-6 from the line, along with six triples, four rebounds, eight assists, a steal, and a block in 37 minutes of action.

Sunday night's offensive explosion marks Lillard's 13th 30-point effort for the calendar year — a feat that no other player in the entire league has been able to match thus far:

Lillard has been smoking hot of late, and he has gone on an unprecedented scoring barrage over the past few weeks. We've got the numbers to prove it:

It is worth noting, however, that despite Lillard's amazing production, the Blazers have actually gone 7-5 in the past 12 contests. On the season, Portland holds a 25-29 record and is ranked ninth overall in a ruthless Western Conference. Currently, the Blazers are two and a half games behind the eighth-seeded Memphis Grizzlies.

You have to wonder what else Lillard has to do in order to get his team over the hump. His out-of-this-world performances have been somewhat overshadowed by his squad's inability to make a substantial run at this point in the season. We still have a little more than a quarter left in the campaign, and as it seems, the five-time All-Star will need to keep up this insane level of play in order to give the Blazers a fighting chance for a postseason berth.
