Damian Lillard may be putting all that “who’s the best point guard in the NBA?” talk to rest. Lillard dominated the Nuggets in Denver, scoring 27 points and notchng a season-high 9 assists. The Blazers won 130-113 in a game so high scoring it felt as 1984 as George Orwell. Portland scored 84 points in the first half. And the Blazers were playing back-to-back road games.
“It felt great, because everything that we wanted to do, you’re in the flow of doing it,” Lillard said. “You want to get out in transition, play unselfish, you want to make shots. You want to defend. We did all those things. That’s as well as we’ve done that all season.”
