While the Blazers are in a pretty good position since the resumption, Damian Lillard took heat last night with his team. What give the leader a great first this season, which should do good to morale.
Very clumsy since the start of the season, Damian lillard extended her vacation in a way. It took a long time to start his exercise, but that’s it, the leader has finally decided to wake up. Dame has been at the level for a few meetings already, and he has just confirmed it this Saturday night with a pure performance against the Sixers.
There was a need for it for the star, who still lacks confidence. It’s been a few games that the prowess is there, but it was necessary to plant a big box to confirm his comeback. It’s done, since he just scored 39 points off the head of a poor 76ers on Saturday, at 10/21 on the shot, with a 5/13 three-pointer and 14/14 on the throwing line.
Damian Lillard gets hot and launches his season!
For Portland, it is a significant success on the score of 118-111. It is good for morale, especially to see Lillard release a big first: a game with 30 points, which he had not yet achieved this season. Yes, an anomaly for him, but it shows how much he was not in his usual form.

We still have to continue to confirm this return to form, but it certainly bodes well for the future. Lillard is there, ready to carry his team during the next playoffs … on condition of qualifying, of course:
With a great premiere, Damian Lillard finally wakes up and it’s nice. The leader confirms his comeback, to the delight of his fans. It remains to be seen if he can continue, even if the star is clearly on the right track.
