Insider: Damian Lillard is King of Clutch in Playoffs

3

"Damian Lillard has been the king of clutch, according to the site's win probability added measure. According to the clock, score and who has possession, there is a win probability associated with every possession in the game. Lillard has lifted that win probability more than any player this playoffs, according to inpredictable.com's metrics. By looking at plays that end a possession either by a shot, free throw or turnover, Lillard has registered a win probability score of 1.08, which means that, piece by piece, his possession-ending plays have cumulatively lifted Portland's win probability by more than a full victory in this series. LaMarcus Aldridge checks in at No. 2 on the list with 0.96 WPA, just ahead of Dallas vet Vince Carter, Houston hero Troy Daniels and some guy named LeBron James."
