PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard led the NBA in scoring last week, and he's now been named the Western Conference Player of the Week.

Lillard was a perfect 36-for-36 from the free throw line, and his nine 3-pointers tied a franchise best.

Meanwhile, Lillard's 49 points during the March 19 game against Miami marked a season high, and in the same game, he became the first Blazer to make 1,000 career 3-pointers.

This is the third time Lillard has been named NBA Player of the Week. He took home the award twice during the 2014-15 season.
