#1 Damian Lillard, January 7th
Though 3 points shy of the mark LaMarcus Aldridge would set later that month, Damian Lillard’s career high display was arguably more impressive (despite the loss). The Kings held the Trail Blazers to just 13 points in the third quarter, riding the performances of DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay to a commanding lead in the fourth. Damian Lillard then proceeded to score a franchise high 26 points in a single quarter (passing Terry Porter) for a total of 41 points. The Trail Blazers lost by four.
