“It’s still early,” All-Star point guard Damian Lillard said. “We’ve only played 12 games and I think we’ve got a lot of time to shore up things we haven’t done well so far. But (to be) 7-5 (when) you’re not rebounding the ball well, you’re not defending at the level you can defend at, not playing very consistent basketball — I’ll take it. I’m not happy with some of the things that have happened. But we’re in a good spot.”
