Awards and records[edit]

On December 5, 2012, Damian Lillard was named Western Conference Rookie of the Month for November, making him the third rookie in Blazers history to earn the honor, following Arvydas Sabonis (1994) and Brandon Roy (2007). When asked about the honor, Lillard stated "I’m happy that I can get it, but I think all that it says is that I played good for one month. My mind has been focused on being consistent for the whole season, so ... it’s a big deal to win the award, but it’s not a big deal for the season. I’ll be happy about it and then it’ll be gone. It’s a new month already."[2]

Injuries[edit]

Reserve guard Elliot Williams tore his left Achilles tendon during a team workout on September 9. He was out for the season.[3]
