Damian Lillard is helping continue the Portland Trail Blazer cinderella regular season run. The Blazers won tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers 119-116 behind a Damian Lillard game-winner at the buzzer. This was Lillard's second game-winner in a row after he knocked down one against the Pistons a couple of nights ago.
The Blazers now have the best record in the NBA at 22-4 and they have currently won five games in a row. Portland's off to a blistering start due to their offense which is first in offensive rating at 113.8 points per 100 possessions. They also grab a ton of offensive rebounds as they are second in the NBA in offensive rebounding percentage (30.0%) early on.
Their pick-and-roll duo of Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge has been unstoppable, with shooters like Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum, Mo Williams, and Dorell Wright complementing the offensive attack. Teams better watch out.
