The San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers will do battle in the second round of the Western Conference playoffs. There will be important matchups all over the floor, but none bigger or full of more star power, than the Tony Parker vs Damian Lillard showdown.
Parker watched Lillard give the Rockets fits, so it should be no shock that Parker was full of praise for Lillard. According to Jeff McDonald, Parker called Lillard one of the top five point guards in the NBA today.
