31 Points, 9 rebounds, and on 9-19 shooting in a rowdy Toyota Center in Houston!
Yeah it sound like Damian Lillard had a pretty good NBA playoff debut. The reigning NBA rookie of the year is playing at an elite level! Though he has been overshadowed by the dominance of Lamarcus Aldridge, Damian’s playoff performances reflect his impressive regular season as well.
Damian Lillard has played his first two years in the league as a veteran. In the regular season he averaged 28.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 7.5 assists. Lillard is also still up-holding his impressive shooting percentage from the field( a little over 45%).
Even though Lillard made the all star team, it is still rather surprising in Lillard’s playoff series he seems to play with so much composure. This is only the first round! Let’s see what he is able to do as the Blazers look to close out the series in Houston tonite at 9:30 on TNT.
