The Trail Blazers beat the Pacers in Lillard’s return from injury

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Jerami Grant scored 28 points to lead the Portland Trail Blazers over the Indiana Pacers 116-100 on Sunday night.

Blazers star Damian Lillard had 21 points and six assists in his first game since returning from a calf strain he suffered on Nov. 19. He has missed 12 games this season.

“It felt good, especially last night. We got a big win and I just wanted to cheer the team on and bring that energy to get on a winning streak,” Lillard said. “I felt normal, I felt good. I think this time it wasn’t as bad as the first time.”

Anfernee Simons had 22 points and six assists on the night, while Jusuf Nurkic had 19 points and six rebounds.

The win helped Portland sweep a back-to-back series after beating Utah on Saturday night.

A night after Grant and Simons combined for 78 points in a win at Utah, Lillard wanted to make sure their return didn’t lead to them rejecting their own offense.
