Game Preview

Damian Lillard makes his return to Portland on Wednesday night and he anticipates a warm welcome despite forcing his way out of town in the offseason.

Lillard was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in September after he decided the Trail Blazers weren’t close to being a championship contender. Wednesday marks his first visit back as a visiting player.

“The Blazers just weren’t in a time where winning a championship was possible or what was able to be done at the time,” Lillard told Oregon Live. “While I’m my best self, I want to be able to play for that.”
