BBallBeakdown: Damian Lillard Is A 'More Explosive Chris Paul'

If you're a basketball junkie, you need to watch this video below. Coach Nick over at BBallBreakdown
dissects Damian Lillard's 23 point, 6 assist, 3 rebound, 0 turnover performance
against the Indiana Pacers. During this seven-minute scouting report (worth every second!), Coach Nick analyzes Lillard's all-around game, including how he runs the pick-and-roll, attacks his defender when in an isolation situation, pushes the tempo in transition, decides when to spot-up, and handles defensive duties.
While Coach Nick raves about Lillard (spoiler alert!), the greatest compliment of all comes towards the end of the video when he says that Dame reminds him of a 'more explosive Chris Paul.' Yes, both players have their different playing styles, but is any comparison 100% accurate? But I see the resemblance in the two players' games and ironically, Damian's best games come when he takes the CP3 approach to the game by setting his teammates up in the first-half and attacking the second-half without any resistance from the defense. Regardless, enough of me talking about this video ...
