The Phoenix Suns should be ashamed of their defensive effort that let Portland Trail Blazers second-year PG Damian Lillard have one of the easiest game-winning shots Wednesday night that you’ll ever see.
Lillard starts at the top of the key, then attacks the basket after a on-ball screen from LaMarcus Aldridge. From there, the Suns allowed Lillard a clear path to the basket without any resistance. Watch:
Lillard is pretty good, but the Suns porous defense on this last-minute play would have given just about anyone the opportunity to convert the layup. Effort like this is what separates the good teams from bad ones.
