Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard is currently mired in the worst extended shooting slump of his NBA career, as he's shooting just 35.7 percent from the field (75-of-210) over his 11 games while missing 17-straight from long range and hitting just 16-of-85 (18.8 percent) from three over that same 11-game span.
"I just have to keep shooting the ball,'' Lillard said, via Jason Quick of The Oregonian. "That's pretty much it.'
"It's funny because it feels good when I shoot it,'' he added following a 40% shooting performance (0-for-5 from long range and 6-for-15 overall) in the team's 108-87 win over the Phoenix Suns. "I think it's just one of those stretches I'm having, and the ball isn't going in.''
However, don't think for a second that Lillard's trademark confidence is wavering.
"Usually when this happens to me - and it happened to me in college and it's happened to me in the NBA, probably not at this rate or this long - but usually when it does, soon after ... I make a lot of them,'' Lillard said.Back to the Portland Trail Blazers Newsfeed
