Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers continues to prove why he’s one of the best point guards in the NBA and one of the best players point blank. The Blazers lead the Oklahoma City Thunder 3-1 on their home court tonight and handled business. They were down by 13 points with over five and a half minutes left and that’s when Lillard took over.
Lillard finished the game with 50 points, seven rebounds and six assists and won the game as he shot the ball almost from half court to sink the shot and give Portland the 118-115 win. He also waved goodbye to OKC as they got eliminated in the first round for the third straight year.
As you can imagine, social media exploded when Dame proved that he’s one of the most clutch players in the NBA. Check out the game-winner below along with Twitter reactions.

Overwhelmed with joy. @Dame_Lillard , thank you for what you do for this city. It’d be unbelievably if it was anybody but you. Go Blazers.
