Damian Lillard willed his Blazers into the play-in tournament on the shoulders of his 42 points (13-of-22 FG, 8-of-14 3PM), 12 assists three rebounds and two steals in an epic 134-133 win over the Nets.
To his credit, the Nets threw everything they had at him on defense but as we've seen in Orlando, Lillard has been playing at completely different level. His an elite talent at the top of his game. The win he helped provide the Blazers tonight catapults them through into the next stage, giving the 8-0 Suns a nod towards the door. His massive run over the NBA restart has been nothing short of amazing. Nuff said.
