Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard sets his sights on the 2014 playoffs.

Karan Madhok of Slam Magazine has an interview with Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard, conducted in China when the 2013 Rookie of the Year was on tour with Adidas. Lillard sets his sights on the 2014 playoffs.

SLAM: What do the Blazers need to do to get into the Playoffs next season?

DL: I think we need to improve defensively. Now we have a year under our belt playing together. We know each other a little bit better so we should be better because of that. As long as we make the improvements we need to defensively, I think we'll be a better team. Hopefully, we can find a way to get into the Playoffs.

...

SLAM: Personally, how do you plan to improve your own game this offseason to get to the next level?

DL: I think I just have to expect more for myself. I of course have to work on my game. I have to get my percentages up, work on finishing better, on new ways to score, and find a way to make my teammates better. If I can do those things and everybody else also improves their game, then we should be a Playoff team.

Blazers GM Neil Olshey discussed the possibility of making the playoffs right here.
