Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard believes that the team is heading in the "right direction".

Damian Lillard has insisted that the Portland Trail Blazers are heading in the "right direction" as they close in on a playoff berth.

The Blazers secured their fourth win in a row with a comfortable 124-112 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

The point guard told reporters: "We had a rough stretch, but now we've kind of picked it back up and we're going in the right direction at the perfect time.

"Now that we're close to the post-season, we want to have that rhythm going into the playoffs, because that's what we play the regular season for.

"Coming in, we felt this could be a 'trap' game against a team that's not in the playoff race. But we knew coming in that they were a dangerous team."

The result leaves Portland fifth in the Western Conference standings, level on wins with the Houston Rockets.
