Peterson: Raptors Coach Dwane Casey Says Blazers G Damian Lillard "Glides With The Ball"

USA TODAY Sports

Torontor Raptors coach Dwane Casey is impressed by Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard.

The praise has been pouring in from opposing coaches for Portland Trail Blazers rookie guard Damian Lillard. I missed these words from Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey last week, via Anne Peterson of the Associated Press.

"It's almost like he glides with the ball. He has a high basketball IQ," Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. "The thing you love about him more than anything else is he plays with a chip on his shoulder. He's one of those underdogs who went to a small school who is out to prove to everybody he's an NBA player."

The Blazers dismantled the Raptors last week.
