Damian Lillard’s family takes part in Something New Challenge
Portland Trail Blazers superstar point guard Damian Lillard and his family took part in the Something New Challenge recently.
With the NBA suspended because of the coronavirus, the Blazers star has more time to spend with his family now and do fun viral stuff like this:

The NBA was forced to suspend the season after Utah Jazz All-Star center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus.
Since then, Jazz star shooting guard Donovan Mitchell, Detroit Pistons high-flyer Christian Wood, Brooklyn Nets superstar small forward Kevin Durant and Boston Celtics combo guard Marcus Smart have tested positive.
Lillard and the Blazers were in ninth place in the Western Conference standings prior to play being suspended. For whatever reason, the Blazers have been very inconsistent in 2019-20 after reaching the Western Conference Finals last season.
For his part, Lillard is once again having another tremendous season. The five-time All-Star is averaging 28.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 7.8 assists for the Blazers while shooting 45.7 percent from the field, 39.4 percent from beyond the arc and 88.8 percent from the free-throw line.
