He hinted as much in a recent appearance on “Bars On I-95, in which he rapped his way to share his thoughts on joining a super team. He gave a special shoutout to Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo and Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki, who both defeated superteams and won the title despite not having the same star-studded squad. Here’s how his freestyle went, via Reddit: “Dame Lillard, DeMar DeRozan, Bradley Beal, trill… Me not wanting to join a super team might end up being my Achilles’ heel… Hector, I’m on my shield… Trying to get next to Freak and Dirk on that lonely hill… Now my goal’s revealed so fuck you, the reporters thinking my homies squealed…”

Damian Lillard on breaking out of his slump: “I’ve been around long enough to know it’s part of the game. I’ve had stretches where I scored 50 points a game for 4 games. You can’t enjoy that without also knowing that when shit goes south, that’s also part of the game.” – 1:14 AM

Luke Kennard on Damian Lillard: “Credit to him, being aggressive and continuing to shoot … that’s what he does.”
Luke on tonight: “We gave ourselves a chance to get back in it but we hurt ourselves, getting down in the first half.” – 1:11 AM

Good, solid win for Blazers who survive 42 points from Paul George and beat Clippers 111-92. Lillard (25 points) brought Blazers home, Norman Powell celebrated return w/four 3-pointers, and Jusuf Nurkić avenged poor performance in LA against Clips with 14 points and 17 rebounds. – 12:23 AM

The Blazers didn’t have an answer for Paul George but they had an answer for pretty much everything else. Dame looked like Dame and they weathered the Clippers second half push. Now for a week on the road. – 12:23 AM

Season-high 42 points for George.
Only Clippers win came when he had only 14 on Monday night vs Trail Blazers.
These same Trail Blazers are up 99-83 with 3:19 left, and this…
