Damian Lillard absolutely ignited the Oklahoma City thunder on Tuesday night with 26 points, six assists, five rebounds and three steals. It was a performance that took place in a landslide victory of 114-94, which gave Blazers an important 2: 0 lead in the first round.
While there were plenty of dramas to choose from, he showed how dominant Lilard was against his opponents, none of them was as good as this mercenary sniper who shot former Trailer Blazer Raymond Felton by the end of the third quarter.
There are two great reasons why this game is held out. First, Lial's handles in this game scream: "I can do what I want, and you can not stop me," which is a feeling that almost immediately proves with his shot. Secondly, it provides a fun reminder of how much better Portland has received as a team in the past decade. Nothing says growth as the current franchise superstar baking hell out of the old piece of meat used to play that star position, and now unsuccessfully tries to defend it.
