• Damian Lillard
    G, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard scored 30 points to go along with six rebounds and four assists on 12-of-27 shooting in a loss to the Clippers on Sunday.

    He shot a putrid 3-of-13 from 3-point range and missed a couple of shots at the end of the game that could have given the Blazers a chance to win. He will be a first-round value this season as the Blazers should remain competitive in the West all season long and he will have a high usage rate as always. His backcourt mate CJ McCollum had 18 points and nine rebounds on 8-of-21 shooting. It was an off shooting night for the backcourt and expect a bounce back performance next game.
