The Portland Trail Blazers superstar and NBA Bubble MVP Damian Lillard chats with the media after his team’s 108-116 loss to LeBron James (38 points), Anthony Davis (29 points) and the top-seeded Los Angeles Lakers in Game 3 of their best-of-seven series at the Walt Disney World Resort outside of Orlando on Saturday night.

A full-time baller and a part-time rapper breaks down what he thought went wrong for the eighth-seeded Blazers as well as how his finger, which was dislocated while trying to swipe the ball from Anthony Davis in Game 2, is affecting his play.

Lillard finished the game with 34 points (on 8/20 shooting), five rebounds and seven assists in 43 minutes of action, while CJ McCollum added 28 points (12/25 shooting), eight boards, four assists and two steals.
