Blazers PG Damian Lillard still struggling defensively
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/30/14) Concerns about the defense of standout Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard returned quickly in 2014 after explosive Thunder counterpart Russell Westbrook torched him (and others guarding him) for 38 points Wednesday night.
Westbrook posted up Lillard, duped him on a backdoor for a layup and shot over him, according to The Oregonian. Lillard seemed affected offensively as he went scoreless in the first half. And though his teammates also had little success slowing down Westbrook, his problems defensively remain.
Blazers center LaMarcus Aldridge, however, believes it has nothing to do with a lack of effort or willingness to improve on that end of the court.
"He's worked on it all preseason," Aldridge said. "He has showed people that he is definitely trying to be better defensively, and he's given better effort. I think everybody is seeing that the effort is there. It's just different when you go from being a scorer to learning how to do both. It just gakes time. ... He wants to do well on both ends."

Trail Blazers pick up Damian Lillard's fourth-year option
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/29/14) The Trail Blazers picked up guard Damian Lillard's fourth-year option, according to the Columbian on Monday. Lillard averaged 20.7 points, 5.6 assists and 3.5 boards while shooting 42.4 percent from the field and 39.4 percent from behind the arc in 2013-14.
|Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard continued to build on a solid 2013-14 campaign with a fantastic postseason run, which was highlighted by a 3-pointer at the buzzer to eliminate the Rockets in Game 6 of the opening round of the playoffs. Lillard converted the same number of field goals (553) in his rookie season as he did in 2013-14, but this time around, he needed 16 more attempts to reach that feat. Although he made the same number of shots, 218 of them came from downtown, 33 more treys than his previous season. In his rookie season, Lillard posted averages of 19.0 points, 6.5 assists and 3.1 rebounds while shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from downtown. He followed that up with averages of 20.7 points, 5.6 assists and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 42.4 percent from the field and 39.4 percent from three-point land in 2013-14. It's no secret that Lillard has become more of a focal point of the offense in just his second season. During his rookie campaign, he registered five 30-point games. In his second season, the 24-year-old posted 10 games of at least 30 points along with a career-high 41-point performance against the Kings in January. Year 3 should be special for Lillard as he continues to trend upward. Target him in the early rounds of the draft, no later than the early portion of the third round.
