Lilliard scores 32, Trail Blazers rout Cavaliers 141-105

CLEVELAND (AP) Damian Lillard had 32 points and nine assists and Enes Kanter had 18 points and 13 rebounds, leading the Portland Trail Blazers to their highest point total of the season and a 141-105 rout of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

Lillard scored 16 points in the first quarter and 14 points in the third as Portland moved within one-half game of the Mavericks and Lakers for fifth place in the West. The Trail Blazers are seventh and would be the top seed in the play-in tournament.

"We're playing our best at the right time," Lillard said. "We've had our ups and downs, but the feeling around our team is much better now. We were kind of searching for a while, but everything just clicked and came together."
