Tonight, the Portland Trail Blazers proved they have the mental toughness to go on a deep playoff run. As it stands, they are now two wins away from the Conference Finals. In 2016, Damian Lillard said his goal was for Portland to go on a deep playoff run.
Damian Lillard has led the Blazers since 2012, fully taking the reigns, once LaMarcus Aldridge left. When Aldridge left, Lillard was counted out, the the Blazers made the playoffs, beat the Clippers, and took a game from the 73-9 Warriors. They just might face them again.
CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard played like champions, tonight, as they outlasted the Denver Nuggets. With a game that went on that long, anything could have happened. What impressed fans, the most, is how they willingly let Rodney Hood be the one to officially put the Nuggets away, which they expressed on Twitter.
