Rookie point guard for the Portland Trailblazers Damian Lillard has been named Kia NBA Western Conference Rookie of the Month for December.

The 22-year-old rookie led all other first-year players in scoring, assists and three-pointers and helped lead the Blazers to a 9-4 record in December. Overall, his scoring average ranked 23rd in the NBA, and he placed 11th in assists.

Lillard also earned the award in November, making him the second player in Trailblazer history to win multiple times along with Brandon Roy.

Lillard has had an impressive rookie season. On Dec. 26, Lillard became the third-fastest Trailblazer to reach 500 points behind Sidney Wicks and Geoff Petrie. He is also the only Trailblazer to play in every game so far this season.
