Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard will participate in the 3-Point Contest this year.

Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard will participate in the 3-Point Contest in Atlanta on March 7, league sources tell Yahoo Sports,” reported Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports.

Lillard, 30, is one of the best shooters in the league.

As a matter of fact, he’s third in the league in 3-pointers made on 38.0 percent shooting from distance this season. Lillard knocked down a whopping 270 triples last season.

Last year, Lillard withdrew from All-Star festivities due to a groin strain. Now, he will have a shot at some redemption.

The Blazers hold a 17-10 record. They’re the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference.

Lillard is putting up 29.3 points, 7.4 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game this season.
