Portland’s Damian Lillard looked back on his team’s first round playoff exit at Team USA media availability in Las Vegas this week. Lillard mentioned how he was confident his Trail Blazers had enough to win against a Denver Nuggets team dealing with injuries and also touched on the loss leaving a sour taste in his mouth.

(Via Portland Trail Blazers):

“I expected us to have a pretty solid run in the playoffs this year and that ended up being cut short. The fact that the season wasn’t extended for me was a sour taste in my mouth after losing so early against a team that was beat up and injured when I expected to win that series.”
