Coming off of an amazing performance against the Rockets which saw Damian Lillard set a new career-high in points with 28 all while handing out 8 assists and committing zero turnovers, he must now store that game in his memory and look ahead to facing one of the NBA's Top 5 point guards in Deron Williams. Williams presents one of the unique matchups for Lillard this season. Although he's already tangled with CP3, Nash, Lin, and Westbrook, Williams is a bigger guard who may try to take Lillard inside. Also, Williams is a a bulldozer playing point guard. Standing 6-3 and weighing 209 lbs, he has the ability to force the issue and attack Lillard on the break. We saw CP3 go right at Lillard earlier this season, which resulted in two early fouls for the rookie. Dame must pick his spots where he contests shots. Portland can't afford their floor general being sidelined with foul trouble. The keys to Dame winning this matchup are staying out of foul trouble, and playing off of Williams, forcing him to shoot from the outside rather than using his strength to get buckets in the paint.

So Rip City, what are your keys to victory?Continue>>>
