Damian Lillard was named to the All-NBA Second Team on Thursday.
Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, DeMarcus Cousins and Chris Paul were also named to the All-NBA Second Team. Lillard may have missed out on an All-Star appearance this season, but being named to an All-NBA team gave him a $20 million bonus via the Rose Rule, thus softening the blow of the All-Star snub.

Damian Lillard scored 28 points in the Blazers' season-ending loss on Wednesday, making 7-of-24 FGs and 12-of-12 FTs with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, seven assists and two steals.

Lillard set a new franchise record for most 3-pointers made in a single postseason (42) but that's no consolation for the Blazers. He averaged 36.5 points vs. the Warriors during the regular season, and 31.8 points through five games in the postseason, with 7.6 assists and 4.4 rebounds, but his efforts weren't enough to prevent an early exit.
May 12 - 2:06 AM

Damian Lillard scored 36 points in a 132-125 overtime loss to the Warriors on Monday, adding six rebounds, 10 assists, one block and five 3-pointers in 47 minutes.

This one has to sting for the Blazers after taking an 11-point lead at half before Stephen Curry went crazy. Lillard continues to post massive lines against the Warriors after a big regular season against them. In the four playoff games, he's averaged 32.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 7.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 5.8 treys. DFS owners almost have to use him.
May 10 - 2:24 AM

Damian Lillard exploded during a Game 3 120-108 victory over the Warriors on Saturday, scoring 40 points with five rebounds, 10 assists and eight 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

He's just the 10th player since 1989 with a 40-plus points, 10-plus assists and five-plus boards game. Lillard set the team record for 3-pointers for a playoff game while the Blazers as a team set their team record in a playoff game at 17. Lillard has been a monster his hometown team all season, including a 51-point gem in the first game after the break. The Blazers are 4-0 at home, so they could tie this series up on Monday. It could be Lillard Time again.
May 8 - 12:00 AM

Damian Lillard said that he feels 100 percent healthy after battling a chest cold for the past week.

Lillard needs to have a strong Game 3 for Portland to avoid falling into a 3-0 hole vs. the Warriors, and improved efficiency would be a start -- the Blazers' two-time All-Star is shooting a mere 36.6 percent in the postseason. He'll have a few more days to prepare before Saturday's crucial home game.
May 5 - 3:50 PM

Damian Lillard (chest cold) looked much better in Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Warriors, scoring 25 points on 8-of-20 shooting with six assists, four boards, two steals and six 3-pointers.

He took over the game in the third quarter with 17 points, but cooled off down the stretch and failed to score in the fourth quarter. To be fair, the whole Portland team cooled off as they scored just 12 points in the fourth compared to 34 by Golden State. The Blazers have lost the first two games but will try to get back on track with the series shifting to Portland for Game 3 on Saturday.
May 4 - 1:57 AM

Damian Lillard (chest cold) said after Tuesday morning's shootaround that he's feeling "a little better."

Lillard acknowledged after Game 1 that he's been dealing with a bit of a chest cold, but there's no way a minor illness will force Lillard to the sidelines for Tuesday's Game 2. Lillard went just 8-of-26 from the field during Game 1, so he'll need to have a much more efficient outing on Tuesday night if the Blazers hope to secure a Game 2 upset over the Dubs.

Damian Lillard said that he's been battling a chest cold for the past few days.

He didn't have a voice after the game, but he's obviously not going to miss any time. Lillard scored 30 points on 8-of-26 shooting in Sunday's loss with five assists, four 3-pointers and four steals with just one turnover, so maybe the illness explains his struggles from the field. Hopefully he will feel better prior to Game 2 on Tuesday.
May 1 - 6:38 PM

Damian Lillard needed 26 shots to score his 30 points during Game 1, finishing 8-of-26 from the field and 10-of-10 from the line with five assists and zero rebounds in 41 minutes.

The Warriors had the league's fourth-most-efficient defense during the regular season and that hasn't changed in the playoffs, as they're allowing a mere 89.2 points per 100 possessions. Lillard's free throw shooting was impressive, and he added four 3-pointers and four steals with just one turnover, but Portland's hopes in the series may hinge on Lillard's ability to get going -- he came in shooting 37.4 percent in the playoffs.
May 1 - 6:28 PM

Damian Lillard scored 28 points in a series-clinching 106-103 win over the Clippers on Friday, adding five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

The Blazers were not supposed to be in the second round after losing four starters this past summer. Well, now they get a taller task against the Warriors. Lillard wears 0 for his hometown of Oakland and he'll be headed back home for Game 1 on Sunday. He was absolutely awesome in his four games against them this year, averaging 36.5 points, 2.0 boards, 6.5 assists, 2.3 steals, 0.8 blocks and 5.8 treys. After a somewhat down round against the Clippers, most DFS owners should have high hopes in the second round.
Apr 30 - 1:42 AM

Damian Lillard got hot late vs. the Clippers on Wednesday, shooting 7-of-20 from the field with five 3-pointers for 22 points, five assists and three steals in a 108-98 road victory.

Lillard's usage rate has dropped since the regular season, and he came in shooting a mere 36.5 percent in the Blazers' first-round series. Much of that can be attributed to Chris Paul's individual defense, however, and Lillard shook off a very quiet first half to erupt for 19 points in the third and fourth quarters. He's poised for a huge line vs. Austin Rivers and Pablo Prigioni in Friday's home game.
Apr 28 - 12:58 AM

Damian Lillard scored 4-of-15 from the field for 12 points with six rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Clippers on Monday.

Things are going to be a little easier on Lillard now that Chris Paul (hand) is out. CP3 has pretty much had his number in every game against him with the exception of Game 3. Lillard should bounce back on Wednesday.
Apr 26 - 1:52 AM

Damian Lillard matched his playoff career-high 32 points during a 96-88 win over the Clippers in Game 3 on Saturday, adding five rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers.

Finally. Lillard was not at his best in the first two games in these playoffs, averaging just 19.0 points, 5.5 dimes, 0.5 steals and 1.5 treys. Chris Paul had Lillard's number for most of the season, making just 32.4 percent from the field during the regular season against the Clippers. Still, Lillard should be ready to roll in Game 4 as the Blazers try to tie this thing up.
Apr 24 - 1:42 AM

The Clippers contained Damian Lillard during Game 2, as he finished with 17 points on 6-of-22 shooting, six rebounds, three assists, four turnovers and zero 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

L.A.'s defensive gameplan is centered around stopping Lillard. "They go as Damian goes," Austin Rivers said after Game 1. "Our focus was to stop him and limit everybody else as well." He's being trapped on many possessions but the biggest issue is Chris Paul's individual defense, which forces Dame to work hard for looks he usually gets at will. Whether Portland plays him off-ball more often or finds another way to spring him loose, they need their leading scorer to heat up at home on Saturday.

Apr 21 - 1:23 AM

Damian Lillard became the Blazers' franchise leader in 3-point makes on Wednesday, as he scored 21 points with three 3-pointers, five assists, three rebounds and a pair of steals.

Dame passed Wesley Matthews on the list and he did his damage in just 24 minutes tonight. The victory gave Portland a 44-38 regular-season record and sets the stage for their playoffs showdown with the Clippers. He finishes as a top-20 value this season in 9-cat leagues despite his 41.9 percent shooting and eight DNPs, thanks to gaudy scoring (25.1 ppg), 3-pointers (3.1), assists (6.9) and FT percentages (89.2 percent on 6.2 attempts).
