Lopez: Won't categorize big night

The Portland Trail Blazers make it five of six games, as in winners of five of its last six by defeating the Detroit Pistons 109-103 Monday night at the Moda Center.

Portland (5-2) shot an incredible 51 percent for the game.

After having one of his worst offensive outings (one-for-15) last game in Sacramento, Damian Lillard quickly erased that game from his memory and went for 25 points.
