Damian Lillard is making a lot of noise in the bubble with his recent performances, leading the Portland Trail Blazers to get the 8th seed in the Western Conference. Dame is inspired and has everybody in awe with his numbers in the last couple of games, making the case as one of the candidates to the bubble MVP.

When a player is having a good moment, they are often compared with other stars and this time wasn't the exception. People have started to recognize that Lillard is one of the best players in the league but others still think he's not the best in his position and doesn't even compare to the arguably best point guard in the league, Stephen Curry.

One NBA fan took to Twitter to make his case for Curry and against Damian Lillard. He admitted he Dame is great but it's not good against the top 5 in the league.

"love Damian Lilliard but he’s no Steph Curry. Curry has destroyed Dame in the playoffs. Dame prob cracks top 10 in the NBA not top 5. So please don’t forget how much we miss these Warriors in the bubble. Steph will be back next year meanwhile the Blazers will be out 1st round," @gjarjour wrote.

He also posted a picture with the numbers between the two stars and the difference is huge. Lillard hasn't won a single game against Curry (10-0) and the last matchup they had happened last year when the Warriors swept the Blazers in the Western Conference Finals.

Curry has dominated Lillard in the postseason but this league changes every year. Plenty of people think having Kevin Durant with him facilitated Curry's job but that hasn't been confirmed yet.

Next year we could see these two going at it and see if Damian can finally beat Steph.
