The Blazers Dame Lillard continues to play like an over-the-hill NBA guards.
Which makes me think Portland may just be ready for a Sixers Ben Simmons trade.
But why would the Sixers want him?
He struggled again last night with just four points on 2-of-13 shooting (0-of-6 3-pointers) but he did have 11 assists with four rebounds, one steal, one block, and two turnovers in the Blazers’ 110-106 win over Indiana.
Head coach Chauncey Billups said that he thinks the new offense could be the reason why Lillard is struggling, but Lillard said that this was not the case and that he does not know what the reason is for the slow start.
His 11 assists to just two turnovers on Friday were huge though, and Portland was still able to win so he can’t be too upset.
