​Paul George was understandably upset when ​Damian Lillard drilled ​a ridiculously deep three-pointer right in his face to sink the Thunder's playoff dreams back in the first round.


Unfortunately for PG13, his comment about Lillard's 37-foot three-ball being a ​"bad shot" has gotten worse and worse as the playoffs roll on. All it takes is one look at the numbers.

Talk about a freezing-cold take.


Lillard has made more 30-footers (nine) in these playoffs than the rest of the NBA (eight) despite 70 fewer attempts. He's shooting an absurd 69% from at least 30 feet, almost seven times better than the rest of the league in terms of efficiency.


The man is virtually automatic on these alleged "bad shots," and has practically carried the Portland Trail Blazers through the postseason with his fantastic play. He's averaging almost 30 points per game in the postseason and is shooting 38.7% from downtown, and played a major role in pushing the Western Conference Semifinals against Denver to a decisive Game 7 this weekend.

It's almost as if Lillard has taken it upon himself to prove George wrong with every single shot that he takes.


Perhaps next time PG should just tip his cap to a job well done rather than venting his frustration and making himself look like a sore loser in the process.
