Lillard, McCollum take turns roasting Clippers after Game 7 meltdown


Β© Kelvin Kuo | 2019 Mar 12


A lot of people enjoyed the Clippers blowing a 3-1 lead to the Nuggets last night, a 104-89 meltdown that included a fourth quarter in which neither Paul George nor Kawhi Leonard scored a single point.

Perhaps no one, and least among NBA players, seemed to enjoy it more than Blazers stars Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. Much of the trolling was directed and related to comments made by Patrick Beverly, who mocked Lillard early in the bubble and then suggested he was headed for an early vacation in Cancun.

McCollum had maybe the best line of the night, alluding to the fact that the Clippers were reportedly one of just two teams to vote to leave the bubble after a meeting with the player’s association following the league wide boycotts.

Finally, Dame got a shot in on George’s off-the-backboard miss, responding to a reference to George’s “That’s a bad shot” remark regarding Lillard’s long-range basket in 2019 that eliminated George and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
