Robin Lopez had arguably the best season of his career in 2013-14 and topped it off by setting the Portland Trail Blazers' single-season offensive rebounding record Wednesday night, per the Blazers' communications department. He grabbed rebound No. 326 of the season with just under 10 minutes remaining in the third quarter.

Lopez climbed ahead of former Blazers Chris Dudley and Kermit Washington, who each had 325 offensive boards in the 1994-95 and 1979-80 seasons, respectively.

Despite breaking the franchise record, Lopez finished just third in the league in O-boards, behind Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond (440) and Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan (331).

In terms of total rebounds, Lopez collected 699 on the year, falling 67 short of LaMarcus Aldridge's 766 for the team lead. Neither player was able to break into the franchise's top-10 list in terms of total rebounds, but Aldridge's 600 defensive boards were good for seventh in Trail Blazers history.

Lopez played in all 82 games for the Blazers this season, averaging 8.5 total rebounds per game (4.0 offensive). He set career-highs in both offensive and total rebounds, not to mention blocks (1.7) and assists (0.9).
