Damian Lillard is looking to continue his Rookie of the Year campaign in Los Angeles against the Lakers. And if you recall, playing in L.A the first time around resulted in one of the worst performances of his young career. In a 104-87 loss back on December 28th, Lillard had just 11 points on 4-17 shooting, 4 assists, and 3 turnovers. Thinking back to that game, Lillard was out of rhythm from the beginning. The Lakers put not Steve Nash on him, but the lengthier Darius Morris and used Morris as a personal pressing machine the entire night, which worked to a tee. Look for Coach Stotts to adjust and find easier ways for Lillard to handle the ball, maybe even using Nicolas Batum as a primary ball-handler to bring it up the court.
So Rip City, what are your keys to victory? Continue>>>
