"You're gonna get them in trouble"

Don't mess with Dame Lillard. If there was any doubt until now, we should all learn from a Magic's fan mistake. After playing poorly in the first half (scored only 7 points), Lillard went off in the second one and turned the game around for a Blazers win over the Magic.

Lillard wasn't playing well in the first half, missing free throws and making bad decisions. With their best player out of sync, it seems Orlando was heading for a win. The energy in the arena went up and fans got excited. Unfortunately for Magic, one of their fans got really excited.

And he did get them in trouble. 34 points in the second half, courtesy of the loudmouth behind the bench. A lesson to fans all around the world. Choose wisely who you heckle, superstars are most often superstars because of their mental toughness and competitive spirit. To such players, fans heckling is the fuel they need to turn a regular season game in Orlando into a game 7 and score 41 points, add 6 assists and 7 rebounds.

The Blazers are now 3-1 and will be heading to Miami to face the Heat.
