After missing seven games with a calf injury, Damian Lillard returned to the court with a vengeance. The Portland Trail Blazers superstar took one game to get his legs back under him, then he turned on the jets.

In fact, Lillard's shooting spree reached historic heights over the past four games.

Lillard became the first player in NBA history to score 150+ points, make 30+ three pointers and shooting 100% from the free throw line during a four-game stretch. Incredible.

The streak kicked off on Dec. 8 against the Denver Nuggets. Lillard scored 40 points and drained 9 three pointers. He returned to the court two nights later against the Minnesota Timberwolves, scorching them for 36 points, and a perfect 15-for-15 from the charity stripe.

The Timberwolves were victims again on Dec. 12, when Lillard scored 38 points and made a ridiculous 11 shots from outside. Two nights later, on Dec. 14, he went off for 37 points and 7-of-14 from beyond the arc.

The Trail Blazers are back in action on Friday night against the Dallas Mavericks.
