Watch: Steven Adams drilled Damian Lillard with screen

Steven Adams

Damian Lillard and Steven Adams exchanged some words during Tuesday’s Game 2 of the Oklahoma City Thunder-Portland Trail Blazers first round playoff series over a hard screen.

Lillard’s Blazers were up big in the fourth quarter when Adams decided to set a screen on the point guard. Lillard ran right into him and went down as if he hit a brick wall.

Adams then committed a foul defending Al-Farouq Aminu the next time up the court, which led to a response from Lillard. The two had a conversation, seemingly about the plays:

There was nothing illegal about that screen whatsoever. It was completely legitimate. It just rocked Lillard.

There’s no surprise after watching that play that Adams was recognized around the league for his toughness.
