Through seven NBA seasons, Damian Lillard has scored a lot of points for the Portland Trail Blazers. And assuming he has an average (for him) game Tuesday against the Clippers, he’ll reach a significant milestone.

Lillard is 23 points from passing LaMarcus Aldridge’s 12,562 points for second all-time in Blazers franchise history. Lillard is averaging 26.1 points per game this season and has a chance to claim the spot in his 535th game. Aldridge reached his total in 648 games in a Blazers uniform.

The franchise leader in points is Clyde Drexler, with 18,040 points scored over 867 games in a Blazers uniform.

Will Lillard end up as Portland’s all-time leading scorer? And where does he rank among the franchise’s greatest players? Let us know in the comments!
