He had 47, last shot of the game, and last game of that series. This goes down as one of the greatest buzzer beaters.

  • Paul George had five fouls at the time Lillard shot the game winner, which had something to do with how he guarded him prior to the shot. Of course, Donovan could have developed a better defense strategy but he did not. Game over.

  • I agree with Stephen A! Only second time someone has hit >=10 threes in playoff history (Klay got 11 in a game). Lillard apparently can hit 39% from 30-40 feet, but I'll argue there really is no precedence to expect him to shoot that for game winner. He calmly dribbled down the time - I thought he miss counted the clock and buzzer was going to expire as he made a move. I think Paul George actually realized he was gonna shoot much faster and *did* challenge the shot; however Lillard jumped to the side just before shooting. He shot under 37% from three for the year and the idea that he has a higher percentage at 37 feet doesn't make much sense. If true, it doesn't detract at all from the awesomeness of the shot. It was ultimate swagger to end the series. The fact that the game was tied instead of OKC ahead doesn't detract from the shot, it just means it wasn't a completely stupid thing to do if he had missed. This definitely deserves to be among the most impressive game winners of all time - all you have to do is look at Terry Stotts face to know that a 37 foot shot wasn't expected (even by Lillard fans / teammates).

  • 37 footer is NEVER a great shot... MJ, Kobe or the Spurs would never taken a shot like that with game on the line. Damian is a great player, the best PG in the NBA right now in my honest opinion. But he had all the chips 3-2 lead... PG and RW on foul trouble, great odds for the over-time. He took the shot because he can afford to MISS IT, PG made right call not to body up because he would have been beat to the basket with a high percentage shot on a isolation play. Would you be saying same thing if Curry takes same shot and gets eliminated in the playoffs??? So stop being hypocrites, amazing shot but not a great shot, don't mistake.
