Lillard began planting seeds as early as Saturday in the locker room after the Blazers’ Game 4 rout to tie the series at 2-2. He watered those seeds during Sunday’s flight to Denver. And into Monday, when the team practiced, he continued to cultivate his message. He said he talked to Carmelo Anthony … Robert Covington … CJ McCollum … and he had an extended conversation with Jusuf Nurkic. The message? “This is the one,” Lillard said. “This is the game right here.”
In front of 8,000 fans at Moda Center on Wednesday night, Covington is playing for something much bigger than a Portland win. “I’m giving kids hope,” he said. “I’m giving kids the understanding that you can make it out anywhere. It’s just a matter of being in the right spot at the right time and believing yourself and really putting the hard work into it. For me, like I said, I take that as a gift because if you put other people in my place, they’d tell you I’m not supposed to be here, but I don’t let that affect me. I let my work ethic, let everything speak for itself. My main thing is keep inspiring, keep motivating kids that to show them that anything is possible.”
