NBA: Preseason-Utah Jazz at Portland Trail Blazers Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard is aware of fans and media casting doubt on Portland’s season and the team’s NBA Playoffs chances. However, he believes in his team, and knows that they’ve been able to pull out playoff berths in five straight seasons (courtesy of Dan Woike of the L.A. Times):

Of note, Lillard says, “it’s not a mistake or a fluke that we always come out on top” when things have looked down in seasons past.

Lillard and the Blazers kick off the 2018-19 season at home against the Los Angeles Lakers Thursday night at 7:30 PT.
