• Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard finished Saturday's 95-97 Game 1 loss to the Pelicans with 18 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers on 6-of-23 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line.

    Lillard struggled mightily with his shot in this one, and C.J. McCollum wasn't much better, going 7-of-18 from the for 19 points, two rebounds, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers of his own. The duo will need to shoot a lot better in Game 2, because if they leave Portland down two games to none, it could be a long flight back from Louisiana.
