Damian Lillard Describes Iguodala Defensive Play in Game 2

Nobody who watched Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Golden State Warriors could forget the final play of the game. Down 3 with less than a shot clock left, the Blazers left the ball in the hands of their super-closer, All-Star guard Damian Lillard. Lillard had defeated Paul George and the Oklahoma City Thunder in Round 1 of the 2019 NBA Playoffs in a similar situation, canning an impossibly long shot for the victory. This time, needing a tie, Lillard stumbled under defensive pressure from veteran Warriors forward Andre Iguodala.
