Damian Lillard throws down a nasty dunk, scores 17 of his 34 points in the 4th vs the Lakers
Damian Lillard made another case on Sunday night that he’s the most clutch player in the league when he scored 17 of his 34 points in the 4th quarter of a 12 point win over the Kobe-less Lakers.
“It was pretty much the same things I saw the last game against them,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said about Lillard who averaged 25 against LA in their past 4 games. “We played them really tough, and then Damien kind of takes over. We tried to pressure him, we tried to trap him at times, but he just made some great shots. He’s just a heck of a player.”
Lillard scored the last 8 points for the Blazers including a nasty and-1 dunk that even made Carlos Boozer act like a Portland fan.
FYI, Lillard is currently 5th in All-Star votes among Western guards. Kobe is 2nd with over 500k more votes.
