Damian Lillard talks reading pick-and-roll defense

Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard tells Coach Nick how he reads pick-and-rolls and then discusses his shooting technique.

It should be no surprise that Blazers guard Damian Lillard learns how opponents are playing him in pick-and-rolls by aggressively attacking them early on within games. No matter, it helps that Lillard has a jump-shooting big man in LaMarcus Aldridge working the two-game game with him.
