Tweet of the Night: Damian Lillard

Portland Trail Blazers rookie Damian Lillard has had quite a start to his career, joining Oscar Robertson as the only player in NBA history to have at least 20 points and seven assists through the first three games.

That streak, however, came to a crashing halt against the Dallas Mavericks, as the point guard managed to score 13 points on just two-of-13 shooting to go along with five assists.

It was a tough night – which was bound to come sooner or later – as Lillard faced the lighting quick Darren Collison, who appears to be poised to have a breakout season of his own – Collison is averaging a robust 16.5 points on 61.4 percent shooting and 8.5 assists in four games.
