Thunder 115, Blazers 118 (Portland wins 4-1)

Wow. Damian Lillard scored a playoff career-high 50 points—including a buzzer-beating game-winner from about 40 feet to close out the series.

Portland trailed by 15 points with 7 minutes left in the game when Dame took his game to the next level. After sinking the series-clinching shot, Dame waved goodbye to the Thunder, who were talking trash following their Game 3 victory.

In addition to his 50 points, Lillard finished with 10 threes, 7 boards, 6 dimes and 3 steals.

Lillard’s performance was truly one for the ages. NBA and WNBA players took to social media to sound off on Dame’s epic performance, with some players calling it the coldest game-winner they’ve ever seen.

They weren’t exaggerating.
