Blazers Cannot Rely on Lillard ‘Heroball’?
Posted By HOOPSWORLD On December 17, 2012 @ 8:26 pm In All,Headlines,NBA Headlines | No Comments
Despite Blazers’ rookie point guard Damian Lillard’s exciting game-winning three pointer to beat the New Orleans Hornets 98-95 yesterday, it came after a string of late-game miscues and missed shots earlier this season. So far, he’s 1-for-4 on “heroball” shots for the season.
It’s also worth noting that the four seconds remaining on the clock dictated the type of shots that were available in last night’s situation, especially given Lillard’s use as the inbounder with Nicolas Batum identified as the No. 1 option. As his record shows, despite last night’s results, the Blazers should rely more on team-oriented offense then just Lillard’s clutch ability.
