Damian Lillard has already been declared a candidate for MVP by opposing coaches in the League and the Blazers point guard is certainly living up to the billing. Last night against the Nuggets, Dame went for 37 points, 7 assists, 5 boards and 3 steals and a game-winning shot to lead PDX to an overtime win.
“We didn’t just get lucky. We made plays,” Lillard told Oregon Live after the game. “We got stops. We executed. We competed. We did all the things that would give us a chance to win the game. I think on one end it’s like, ‘Man if we would’ve lost that…’ but on the other end it’s like, ‘Well, this is what good teams do. You find a way to win it.'”
