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.
Lillard registered 55 points (17-24 FG, 12-17 3Pt, 9-10 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds, three blocks and a steal across 52 minutes in Tuesday's double-overtime loss against the Nuggets. Lillard recorded a new personal playoff-high scoring output with a lay-up at the beginning of the second overtime, and he also set an NBA playoff record with 12 threes made. The star point guard lacked support in this game, as no other Portland player reached the 20-point plateau, but he continues to prove he can carry the team offensively when it matters the most. Lillard is averaging 35.6 points per game in the current series and has scored at least 34 points in four of the five games thus far.
Lillard recorded 10 points (1-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), 10 assists, eight rebounds and a steal across 31 minutes in Saturday's win over the Nuggets. Lillard missed all of his attempts from inside the arc and had his worst shooting performance of the campaign, but he still found a way to contribute in other categories and ended just two boards shy of putting up a triple-double -- his seven trips to the charity stripe allowed him to boost his scoring figures. Despite the down game, it's worth noting Lillard had scored at least 34 points in each of the previous three games of the series and should bounce back Tuesday in Game 5.
Lillard tallied 37 points (15-31 FG, 5-16 3Pt, 2-2) five assists, two rebounds and two steals in 39 minutes during Thursday's 120-115 loss to the Nuggets. The 30-year-old has been on fire over his first three games of the playoff series, averaging 37.7 points, 9.3 assists, 6.3 three-pointers and 2.7 rebounds on 45.0 percent field-goal shooting in that span. Despite Lillard's herculean effort, the Blazers find themselves in a 1-2 hole. The ninth-year guard will look to help Portland get back on track and even up the series in Game 4 on Saturday.
Lillard finished with 42 points (11-24 FG, 9-16 3Pt, 11-13 FT), 10 assists, four rebounds and a blocked shot across 42 minutes in Monday's 128-109 loss to the Nuggets in Game 2 of the first-round series. Lillard was splendid in the first half, but then the Nuggets pulled a fast one by putting Aaron Gordon in front of the All-Star. The result was a massive neutralization of Lillard. The standout guard can never be stopped completely, but Gordon noticeably rattled Lillard for the remainder of the game, and most of Lillard's shot attempts were heavily contested. Still, Lillard finished with nine three-pointers, which is a season-high total.
