After dropping 40 points on the Washington Wizards in a 119-109 win on Sunday night, Damian Lillard follows with an encore at Madison Square Garden, where the Portland Trail Blazers travel to take on the New York Knicks at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
Lillard had 31 of his 40 points in the second and third quarters to help Portland rebound from a two-game losing streak, which followed a four-game winning streak.
"We were in a situation where the players have to take over," Lillard said after the game. "In the second half, I already had my mind made up that I was going to come out with my foot on the gas and be aggressive. Whatever that result was, I was going to live with it and I'm just glad it turned out to be a W."
