Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard sent the Oklahoma City Thunder packing in epic fashion Tuesday night.
With the a 3-1 lead in the series and a tied game as the seconds ticked down in game five, Lillard stepped back to hit an extremely deep three.
The shot gave the Trail Blazers a 118-115 win and pushed them to the next round of the NBA playoffs. Watch the incredible play below.
Absolutely incredible. Talk about a gutsy shot. It really doesn’t get much more gutsy than that. The game is tied and the Portland star didn’t even hesitate to pull up from several feet behind the arc.
Shooters shoot and that’s exactly what Lillard did. He had all the confidence in the world, cocked it back and let it fly.

Portland will now play the winner of Denver/San Antonio. Given what we have seen out of Lillard lately, I’m not sure either team wants to play the Trail Blazers. (RELATED: Milwaukee Bucks Star Bullies Blake Griffin With Humiliating Dunk)
He’s out there balling right now and he’s doing it in epic fashion.

I still can’t believe he went to Weber State for college. How was he not at a powerhouse program? It doesn’t make sense at all, but he’s making the most of it since joining the NBA.
That was an incredible shot from a star player. That’s exactly what he’s expected to do, and he pulled through in a major way.
