Damian Lillard Sets Trail Blazers Three-Point Record, Secures 25 PPG Season

In the Blazers' regular season finale, Damian Lillard passed a bunch of names in the record books.

Heading into the final game of the season the playoff match up for the Portland Trail Blazers had already been set by tip off. However, yet to be decided were a couple of Blazers records and achievements, particularly focused on Damian Lillard.

On Wednesday night Lillard took over sole possession of the Trail Blazers franchise record for career three-pointers made. Wesley Matthews held the record previously with 826 made three-pointers, which was achieved in 359 games as a Blazer. Damian Lillard broke the record in 320 games.

In typical Lillard fashion, he didn't just settle for a single achievement. With that made 3-pointer he also secured at least a 25 point per game average for the season. Becoming just the 3rd Trail Blazer ever to do so, going Clyde Drexler and Kiki Vandeweghe.

As his evening wound down, he couldn't resist passing one more classic Blazer name.
