Damian Lillard simply would not let the Portland Trail Blazers lose.
Lillard drained a 37-foot three-point shot as time expired to give the Blazers a 118-115 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5 to clinch their first round playoff series Tuesday night at the Moda Center. The three-pointer gave Lillard 50 points for the game and he waved good-bye to the Thunder after thunderous roar from the hometown crowd.
Among the people Lillard was waving goodbye to was Oklahoma City Thunder small forward Paul George. If you remember, this past offseason Paul George decided to pass on a meeting with the Los Angeles Lakers and shortly announced that he is re signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder to take care of some unfinished business.
Right after the game ended, Kyle Kuzma took to Twitter to remind Paul George that he made a mistake not signing with the Lakers.
The Blazers won the best-of-seven series 4-1 and will advance to the Western Conference semifinals where they will face the winner of the Denver Nuggets-San Antonio Spurs series.
