Video: Damian Lillard's monster dunk a part of former Weber State guard's big night vs. Lakers
Former Weber State guard Damian Lillard had a big night Tuesday, scoring 34 points — including 11 in the fourth quarter — in leading the Portland Trail Blazers past the Los Angeles Lakers 124-112.
He added eight rebounds and three steals.
The biggest moment of the night, though, came in the second quarter with the Trail Blazers trailing 52-51. After driving into the frontcourt, Lillard weaved his way toward the basket and threw down a thunderous one-handed dunk over Lakers Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman.
A participant in this year's NBA Slam Dunk Contest, Lillard found himself in the spotlight again with this highlight dunk, as it made ESPN SportsCenter's Top 10 plays of the night.
