The Denver Nuggets decided to warm up to one of Damian Lillard’s tracks prior to their game against the Los Angeles Clippers. While it may be a sign of respect after Lillard scored 61 points in the Portland Trail Blazers’ win over the Dallas Mavericks last night, it certainly is odd.

Lillard started a feud between the two teams by talking trash to Patrick Beverley during Portland’s 122-117 loss to the Clippers this weekend.
Beverley returned the favor when Lillard missed two clutch free throws with 18.6 seconds left, laughing at him from the Clippers bench.
Since Portland is vying for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference, and the Los Angeles Lakers have already clinched the No. 1 seed, we may have to wait until the Western Conference Finals for a potential matchup between these two teams.
While it isn’t likely, it certainly would be an entertaining series.
