It is time.
Time for Damian Lillard to prove that he isn’t merely Brandon Jennings 2.0 and is instead an actual point guard. He’s not going to be convincing many people with this latest 2-assist, 20-shot performance. Come on man, you have Aldridge on your team that should be like 5 free assists a game.
This isn’t an indictment of Lillard as a player (actually it kind of is), but he would be better off as a shooting guard, with a pass-first point beside him. That’s easier said than done, since we are currently in the era of scoring PGs who only pass because assists show up in the box score.
