Damian Lillard's Sister Storms Court After Game-Winner: "That's My Brother"

Celtics can sweep Warriors Raptors Blazers aiming at 3-1

Both Russell Westbrook and Paul George played with five fouls in the fourth quarter, and after an explosive first half where Lillard scored 34 points, things had slowed for Portland. The Blazers held a 61-60 lead at the half. Westbrook was 6-of-17 on jumpers and although going 4-of-10 on 3s softens the blow so many of those contested pull-ups likely could have generated a greater return for the Thunder. Indeed, Nurkic's presence seemed to fuel Portland. The Thunder then went on a 15-2 run themselves.

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (21) celebrates with forward Tobias Harris (33) and forward Jonathon Simmons (17) against the Brooklyn Nets during the third quarter in game five of the first round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs at Wells Fargo Center.

"CAN play Kanter", he tweeted less than an hour after Damian Lillard's 37-foot 3-pointer gave the Blazers a 4-1 series victory. As time ticked down and with the game on the line, Lillard hit the biggest shot of the night, right as time expired.

"Not just that shot, but the whole series", he said. It was a lovely shot that will stand the test of time as one of the most iconic series-winning shots of all-time. "I was standing there looking at the rim, and I was like, 'This is a comfortable range.' [George] was a little bit off of me, and there was enough space for me to raise up and shoot it for game".

But this was so much more.

The chippiness and the Thunder's antics were on full display in front of their home crowd.

This was the Thunder in microcosm, their season played out over 48 minutes. The idea that they could - or should - have a team built on the backs of Lillard and McCollum has raised the eyebrows of many, including myself. Does the team need to consider a new direction at head coach?

It generally takes a playoff series to create a rivalry between two teams.

To that end, Portland rose again and again to the challenge.

If that is the case, and Westbrook's mentality is focused on one-upping Lillard and proving his dominance over Portland's star point guard, then he needs to wake up immediately and realize that the postseason is no time to settle debates stirred up by the media. At this point, it's fact.

When asked to explain his post-game wave, Lillard explained it was a response to Oklahoma's antics after winning Game 3 of the series. "They made some tough shots, Lillard especially", said Adams.

When Lillard hit the shot, there was a huge celebration on the court and even some of the fans were involved. They advance to the second round, and Rip City will be buzzing all week long.
