Damian Lillard drops a career high 37 on the Warriors (VIDEO)

Jan 12, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

These are some pretty tasty Damian Lillard highlights from the Blazers loss on Friday night at the hands of the Warriors.

Lillard essentially goes bonkers from distance, pulling up from long range time and time again and draining three-pointers as if they were 15-foot jumpers. He went 7-of-12 from behind the arc, and was 15-of-25 shooting on the night for a career high of 37 points.

Lillard played high school basketball in Oakland, and had family and friends in attendance for his first NBA game there. He came through in a big way, and it’s tough to disagree with LeBron James when he says that Lillard is the clear-cut Rookie of the Year to this point in the season.

    Yup, future start right there! Even when he’s not shooting well, he is controlled, he’s smart, he changed speeds, his game is so mature looking!
    How did so many teams pass on this guy?? No doubt you could tell he was gonna be a star after the first week of the season.
