Damian Lillard exploded for 40 points with 10 dimes to give the Portland Trail Blazers their first win in their western conference semi-final matchup against the Warriors. Stephen Curry who?
“I think we played a lot smarter down the stretch than we did the last game, and we challenged them,” Lillard said. “Last game, I think, we played good and then we let up a little bit, and they turned it on — like championship teams do. … Tonight we didn’t allow that to happen, we kept doing what was working for us.”
