It makes sense that Damian Lillard would be the happiest person on the planet. Being in the playoffs is all that Lillard wanted after using his postseason time for trips the previous two years.

He played with the Blazers for 11 seasons, and not winning a single championship was a stain on his resume, so it made sense that his playoff entry was significant.

However, he currently plays for the Bucks, and making it back to the playoffs increases his chances of realizing his dream of becoming a champion.

In a post-game interview, Damian Lillard talked about his thoughts on returning to the playoffs after a two-year absence following the Pacers’s loss to the Bucks. The funny part, though, was when he mentioned his vacation spot—Coachella. He did, however, have one benefit—he had never been to Coachella before.

Last two years not being in the playoffs,, it sucked. Early vacations. Last year I went to Coachella. I ain't ever been to Coachella. But being able to be in a playoff series on a championship team, in a championship organization, knowing that we got an opportunity for it, I think that was the thing I was looking forward the most. 
Speaking in the post-match interview, Damian Lillard said

Seven months have passed, and the Milwaukee Bucks haven’t dashed Lillard’s dreams of a postseason return. Given the circumstances of the Bucks and Blazers at the moment, the 33-year-old made the right choice in joining the Bucks.

In contrast to his previous Blazers season, he is having an ordinary season. He won’t care if the titles come to him, even if it wasn’t the best season.

Damian Lillard taking charge of the Milwaukee Bucks in the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo

The Milwaukee Bucks took on the Indiana Pacers tonight without their star player, Giannis Antetokounmpo, due to a calf injury.

Before the game, it appeared that the team led by Pascal Siakam would make it difficult for the Bucks to get a win from them. However, such was not the case as the seasoned Damian Lillard defended his team and put on an incredible display, scoring 35 points.

They were never vulnerable without Antetokounmpo, and with Lillard, they controlled the entire game, making things tough for the Pacers right from the start.

He had a mindset of never letting the game go and scored 19 points in the opening quarter and 16 points in the second. The player whom the Bucks front staff traded for shortly before training camp began is revealing the outcome of his call-up.

According to the source, Antetokounmpo’s injury is not too serious because he may return to game two or, most likely, game three.

However, Lillard must first continue to play well and replicate his game-one performance against the Pacers. Yes, indeed, his season for the Bucks has not been too good, but he is back in form at the correct time, and that’s what his team needs.
