Portland’s Damian Lillard gets swatted on dunk attempt

If the Portland Trail Blazers are going to pull off one of the biggest upsets in NBA playoff history, they’re going to need Damian Lillard to play at a level never before seen.

Trying to dunk in the lane on the entire Warriors defense though? That could use some tempering of expectations:

Trying to go up and over center JaVale McGee? Not optimal. But having Klay Thompson pack your shot and send it flying? Going down 20 in the third quarter got into Lillard’s head.

At least now he knows not to try and dunk on the Warriors in any capacity.
