Blazers’ Damian Lillard brings back Paul George’s ‘bad shot’ quote after awful miss vs. Nuggets in G7
Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul George horrendously missed a 3-pointer in Game 7 of the Western Semis against the Denver Nuggets. Portland Trail Blazers star guard Damian Lillard took this as an opportunity to retaliate at George for the latter’s ribbing of his 30-foot 3-pointers.
Via Twitter, a fan asked Lillard if George’s terrible miss from the short-corner was a good shot. Lillard responded sarcastically, effectively slamming George in the process.

To recall, George criticized Damian Lillard’s 3-pointers from the logo, noting that they are bad shots. It doesn’t matter if Lillard knocks them down more often than not.
The two have been having a mini-feud in the bubble. It all started when Lillard missed two critical free throws in their seeding game against the Clippers. George and Patrick Beverley lashed out on Lillard to which the Blazers guard took offense. Lillard reminded them that he has sent them home on two separate occasions in the playoffs.
George said that this time around, Lillard will be the one to go home early. Lillard retaliated by criticizing George’s move from team to team, noting that he’s “running away from the grind.”
Though the mini-feud died down after the Blazers’ first-round exit, from the looks of it, it has been resurrected once again. George will likely take some time off to absorb the loss and reflect on things. Once he’s back, fans should expect fireworks between Lillard and George.
