Damian Lillard named Western Conference Player of the Week

After a 3-0 week where the Blazers were underdogs in all 3 games. Trail Blazers star point guard, Damian Lillard was named NBA Western Conference Player of the Week. Dame averaged 34.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists on the week including hitting a classic step back three pointer against the Lakers with time running out to give the Blazers a 2 point lead with just over 10 seconds left. It wasn’t all just the offense as the Blazers defense is ranked 5th in defensive rating so far this season. The schedule continues to be tough. They play the Nuggets on Monday night where the Nuggets are favored on the road. I think it’s safe to say that Damian Lillard is healthy once again.
