Damian Lillard named to All-NBA second team

The All-NBA teams were announced Tuesday night and a certain point guard from the Trail Blazers made the list.

Six-time Portland All-Star Damian Lillard has been named to the All-NBA Second Team.

This is the fourth time in his career that Lillard has been named to the All-NBA Second Team.
