(AP) Last season Damian Lillard became part of the highlight reel for the playoffs with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer that catapulted the Trail Blazers out of the opening round for the first time in 14 years.

Damian Lillard Will Not Quit On The Portland Trail Blazers

The last playoff game in Memphis didn’t go well. Neither did the first. That’s the NBA. Teams click, then they don’t, and everyone finds a player to blame. In Portland that player is Damian Lillard.

Portland Trail Blazers Home Ticket Prices Dwarf Prices At FedEx Forum

With a season-ending injury to Wesley Matthews, the Portland Trail Blazers knew any playoff series would have to be won by their two stars, LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard. Aldridge scored enough points, 32, but it took a lot of shots to get there, shooting 13-for-34 from the field. Lillard, quite frankly, put up a dud and as a result, the Blazers trail 1-0 in their first-round...

Can the Portland Trail Blazers Rule the West?

On Friday, the Portland Trail Blazers claimed the Northwest Division Title all for themselves for themselves for the first time in 16 years. This was all thanks to the Memphis Grizzlies’ victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. But before the team could celebrate, there was the small task of demolishing the woeful L.A.

A Potential Los Angeles Clippers Matchup Would Likely Be Frustrating … And Lots Of Fun

When Damian Lillard swished in a deep 3-pointer over the outstretched arms of Chandler Parsons, I, like many Portland Trail Blazers fans, let out what can only be described as a primal scream. Not only was it one of the most incredible finishes to a game I’ve ever witnessed, but, it also sent my favorite team to the 2nd round of the NBA playoffs for the first time in nearly a decade...

WATCH: Blazers announcer botches Damian Lillard call

Damian Lillard is quickly becoming one of the NBA’s best clutch players.  Tuesday night in OKC, Lillard hit a three to send the game into OT that looked a lot like the one he hit against the Houston Rockets in last year’s playoffs. That shot certainly entered the memory of Blazers analyst Mike Rice.  But in calling back to the Rockets buzzer beater, he had a slight geography...
