Over the last two games, he is shooting just 29 percent (10 of 35) and through five games this season, he’s shooting just 38 percent (33 of 87). After practice on Friday, Lillard remained on the court and worked on his long-range touch. “I don’t do it every practice but I just wanted to make sure I got here … for me it’s about how I feel,” he said. “I want to go into tomorrow with a good feeling. Not that I had bad feeling before, but I just wanted to try to get the ball up in the air a little bit more. So I got a lot of shots up, focusing on catching it and being ready to shoot.”
Lillard and Beverley are far from strangers after some feisty matchups during the regular season and playoffs, and Lillard expects more of the same in the latest edition of their on-court rivalry. “Going up a defender like him is going to bring out the best in me,” Lillard said after Wednesday’s practice. “I’m always up for that challenge. … When he was in Houston those first couple of years, we hated each other. We had some real bad blood, there was a dislike there. But I don’t take it personal, I see him do it all the time.”
