The Portland Trail Blazers were the story of the first few weeks of the 2013-2014 season as they charged out to a hot start in the Western Conference. As the end of the season approaches, they have found themselves jousting with the Houston Rockets for the 4th seed and home court in the first round.
A big part of their success is second-year guard Damian Lillard, who is once again enjoying a stellar season. In 80 games he is averaging 21 points per contest on 42.5% shooting. In a showdown with the Golden State Warriors on Sunday night, he showed some great athleticism on this left-handed finish at the rim.
After Sunday’s game with the Warriors, Portland plays their season finale Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Clippers.
