Lillard mustered 28 points (8-20 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 9-9 FT), 13 assists, four rebounds and two steals across 43 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Nuggets.

Lillard recorded his fifth double-double of the series Thursday and also surpassed the 25-point mark for the fifth time, but his efforts on the offensive end of the court were not enough to carry the Blazers to a potential Game 7. Lillard struggled a bit from deep in Game 6, but that shouldn't hide the fact that he delivered an impressive performance across the board throughout the series. He averaged 34.3 points, 10.2 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game as Portland got trounced in the first round.
