Damian Lillard Destroys Skip Bayless After Disrespectful Claim

It has been quite the 48 hours for Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard.

The 30-year-old point guard got into it with Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley on Saturday in the Blazers’ 122-117 loss. That sparked a major feud between Lillard and the Clippers.

Now, Fox Sports analyst Skip Bayless is the latest to take a shot at Lillard.

Bayless’ shot at Lillard comes the day after the star guard dropped 51 points against the Philadelphia 76ers to keep the Blazers’ playoff hopes alive.

Lillard responded to Bayless, saying that he has never respected the sports pundit.

Lillard has been doing everything he can to try to will the Blazers into the playoffs, but he may have shot himself in the foot by missing two clutch free throws with 18.6 seconds left against the Clippers on Saturday.

Regardless, Portland is just a half-game behind the Memphis Grizzlies for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference.

After his miraculous performance on Sunday, Lillard will look to deliver for the Blazers once again when they take on the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.

Lillard is averaging a career-high 29.3 points per game to go along with 8.0 assists and 4.3 rebounds this season.
