According to NBA.com, Jrue Holiday has been able to shut down Damian Lillard so far in Games 1 and 2.
Jrue Holiday has guarded Damian Lillard on 74 total possessions throughout Games 1 and 2, which is 44.3 percent of the time Lillard has been on the court. In those 74 possessions Lillard has scored just seven points on 2-of-18 from the field. Alvin Gentry has previously stated that he thinks Holiday is the best two-way player in the NBA and he is looking very smart right now. Lillard has been awful so far in two games facing constant double teams and shooting just 31.7 percent. Game 3 is on Thursday and one would expect Lillard to make adjustments and be much better the rest of the series.
