Damian Lillard Leads Blazers to Second Round

The Blazers got the win they needed in LA on Wednesday and were looking to close the series back on their home floor in Game 6 on Friday. Damian Lillard, hungry as ever, came out firing and carried his squad to the clutch 106-103 win over a Clippers team that refused to back down.

Lillard, who has been on quite a mission since his All-Star snub, finished the game with 28 points, 7 assists and 5 rebounds. His backcourt mate CJ McCollum added 20 points and nailed a clutch 3-pointer in the final minute to seal the game and series for Portland.

The Blazers are set to take on the Warriors in the Western Conference Semi-Finals, who will most likely be without Steph Curry for the first two games of the series. Fresh off the All-Star snub, the Warriors felt Lillard’s wrath as he exploded for a season-high 51 points and handed the Dubs one of their nine losses on the season back in February.
