At the Portland Trail Blazers' shootaround Monday, guard Damian Lillard described the team's mindset down 3-0 in the series. "You've got to have some pride," Lillard said. "Nobody's ever done it before but from here we've got to do one game at a time. This game is on our home floor, so we've got to win the game, give ourselves the opportunity to get back on that plane. Get into a Game 5, go steal one and come back here and make something out of it. You've got to have some pride. We've been in position to win two of these three games. We've just got to go get one."
