Lillard Has 41 and Blazers Beat Wizards 116-109 in OT
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Damian Lillard had 41 points and 11 assists, and the Portland Trail Blazers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 116-109 overtime victory over the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night.
It was Lillard's 15th straight game with 20-plus points, the second-longest streak in the NBA behind Kevin Durant's 48. CJ McCollum added 18 points for Portland, which moved into sixth place in the Western Conference.
John Wall had 20 points and 11 assists for the Wizards, who have lost three straight. Ramon Sessions added 21 points off the bench, while Marcin Gortat had 19 points and 10 rebounds.
Wall hit a 3-pointer with 15 seconds left in regulation to give Washington a 104-102 lead, but McCollum hit a pull-up jumper with 5.4 seconds to go to tie it at 104. The game went to overtime when Gerald Henderson swatted away Gortat's attempted layup.
