• Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard did not skip a beat in Game 1, leading the Blazers to a 100-93 win over the Lakers with 34 points (9-of-21 FGs, 10-of-10 FTs), including six 3s with five rebounds, five assists and one block in 43 minutes.

    Lillard, as expected, played a huge role in setting up the upset victory. As long as Dame Time keeps ticking and the rest of the Blazers fall in line to the cadence of Lillard's marching orders, then there's a reasonably good possibility that they could pull off a crazy upset in the first round vs. the top seed in the Western Conference.
