Playoff basketball is like a game of chess.
It's the adjustments teams make during the game that can ultimately swing momentum and lead to victory.
Well, in Game 2, with the Trail Blazers down nine points in the second quarter, Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard tried something a little unorthodox.
Coming out of a timeout, it should have been Lakers ball. But, apparently, Lillard took the ball across the court and got the Trail Blazers possession. The only person to notice? LeBron James.
Nice try, Dame!
It almost worked.
We'll see what kind of shenanigans go down when Game 3 tips off Saturday at 5:30pm.
