Blazers’ Damian Lillard’s savage response to Patrick Beverley, Paul George’s late-game antics on Clippers bench

After Portland Trail Blazers superstar point guard Damian Lillard missed two clutch free-throws against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, Patrick Beverley, Paul George and Marcus Morris trolled Dame.

After the game, Lillard responded by reminding Beverley and George they’ve both been sent home in the playoffs by him.

The Blazers star eliminated Beverley and the Houston Rockets in 2014 and George and the Oklahoma City Thunder last season on game-winning shots at the buzzer to end both series.

Beverley didn’t play against the Blazers on Saturday. Lillard was actually talking trash to the Clippers guard during the game, telling him to come on the court and guard him since no one on the Clippers could.

In the end, it was strange to see Lillard miss two free throws in a row. The Blazers needed to win on Saturday since the Memphis Grizzlies were victorious on Friday. Portland is back in action on Sunday against the Philadelphia 76ers. Every game from here on out is crucial for Lillard and Co. if they want to get the No. 8 seed outright or force a play-in game.

Lillard entered Saturday averaging 29.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 8.0 assists per game for the Blazers. Portland fans can expect the five-time All-Star to come out firing on Sunday since he came up short against the Clippers. It’s very rare when Lillard doesn’t respond to a bad moment well in the next game.
