Damian Lillard Throws Down Huge Poster Dunk vs. Lakers

Josh MartinNBA Lead WriterApril 2, 2014

Damian Lillard may not have won this year's convoluted Slam Dunk Contest during NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, but that doesn't mean he didn't deserve to be there.

Case in point: this filthy flush over Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman during the second quarter of the Portland Trail Blazers' showdown with the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on Tuesday. Lillard knew how nasty it was, as his post-dunk mean mug would suggest.

Just about any team would've had trouble stopping Rip City's young guard off of a pick-and-roll with fellow All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge, but these Lakers are especially defenseless; they rank 28th in the league in defensive efficiency while allowing the opposition to shoot a staggering 63 percent in the restricted area this season, per NBA.com
