Lillard leads Portland against Nets with playoffs on the line

Damian Lillard's dominance has the Portland Trail Blazers on the verge of officially clinching a postseason berth.

While Lillard might not need to score 50 or 60 points again, a win would cement the Trail Blazers in the eighth seed in the Western Conference. Portland's final regular-season game is Thursday against the Brooklyn Nets in the NBA bubble near Orlando.

"We have to come out with the same mentality," Lillard told reporters. "We control our own destiny. That's the most important game of our lives."
