Also got the feeling that was was a very unconvincing win. But I guess a W is W.. 

I think the Bucks take the next 2 and win 4-1

The Athletic's Shams Charania reported after Game 3 that Lillard has separated ribs and is playing through the injury.

Portland Trail Blazers All-NBA star Damian Lillard has separated ribs and is playing through the injury, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium. Lillard shot 5-of-18 in Game 3 loss to Warriors.
 

Ouch, it'll be tough for him to breath much less play basketball.  But why is this coming out now?  Did it just happen, or they're about to get swept and want an excuse?

It’s all media spin. Dame was asked about it directly and said it’s not effecting his game much, but basketball media knows who their fan favorite sweethearts are and it knows the guys fans love to hate. Guys like Steph and Dame struggle and they must be hurt, guys like LeBron or KD struggle and they’re losing a step or there’s a problem with team chemistry.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Steph and Dame and they’re almost completely blameless in it, but it’s just how the media handles the league nowadays

Hahaha! Hey Bebop, I can't stop laughing at your username. It is truly original. :) 

My question is, why is Damian playing with that type of injury? It should be painful to dribble, pass or shoot the ball. Some players get by playing with back problems. But separated ribs?

Once I had a fractured bone in my back. It was very painful I could not even turn a steering wheel. The neurosurgeon said to me that he didn't want to perform surgery and if I was careful and just didn't do anything that was strenuous, it would heal on its on.
