The Portland Trailblazers are looking to take a 3-1 lead against the Thunder later tonight, as the series shifts back to Portland. Damian Lillard has given for the Thunder problems during the first two games of the series. In game one Lillard scored 30 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists leading the Blazers to a 104-99 victory in game one. In game two, Lillard scored 29 points, grabbed 4 rebounds, dished out six assists, and beat the Thunder 114-94.
In game three, the Blazers would get another solid game from Damian Lillard as he scored 32 points, nabbing four rebounds, and dishing out six dimes, but unfortunately, the Thunder were too much down the stretch. The Thunder would beat the Blazers 120-108, behind the brilliant play of Russell Westbrook and Paul George as both players combined for 55 points, 11 rebounds, and 17 assists.
Earlier this week, ESPN analyst Mark Jackson gave Damian Lillard praise and stated he deserves to be on the big screen.
“Damian Lillard absolutely deserves to be on the big screen,” said Mark Jackson.
