Damian Lillard Before Game 5: “I’m Getting Rid Of These Motherf**kers Tomorrow!’


Game 5 between the Blazers and Thunder was one for the record books!
The Blazers advanced thanks to Damian Lillard’s INSANE 50-point performance (10!!! 3-pointers). Three of his fifty counted for the game winner from near half court.




According to a report by Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes, Lillard more or less called destroying the Thunder the night before. Dame apparently invited a group of friends to his house, and told them that he was  “getting rid of these motherf**kers tomorrow”:


“For several minutes, the Portland Trail Blazers’ star guard sat quietly on his sofa, chowing down on fried catfish, red beans and rice, and broccoli. And then suddenly, he spoke: “I’m getting rid of these mother——- tomorrow.”


Lillard also gave Haynes some interesting insight on his matchup with Russell Westbrook:


“Lillard showed a social-media clip of him telling Westbrook, “Stop running from this ass whoopin’,” as Lillard grew weary of Westbrook switching off him, while Lillard continued to be Westbrook’s primary defender.

And what came out of Westbrook’s mouth during a few of his post-basket outbursts was the B-word, something most players wouldn’t dismiss without an altercation.

“The way I see it, it’s basketball,” Lillard told Yahoo Sports. “I know I ain’t no b—–ass mother——; so it doesn’t bother me.

“I’m not out here to prove to these dudes that I’m the hardest mother—— in the league because they cussed at me on the court. But they know where I’m from and what I’m about. This Oakland. But I don’t take s— personal. My goal is to get the win.”
