Lillard scores 31, Blazers beat Suns 118-111

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Damian Lillard says he's finally feeling close to normal.

Lillard, who dealt with a hamstring injury late in December before straining his right calf earlier this month, scored 31 points in a 118-111 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night.

"When I came back I knew that it would take some time to just to be able to move comfortably. The last few games, each game has gotten better," said Lillard, who missed five games with the hamstring and two with the calf. "Tonight I just felt good. I felt almost normal at times."
