NBA Players React to Damian Lillard's CLUTCH Game 5 Performance

NBA Playoffs Oklahoma City Thunder at Portland Trail Blazers

When Damian Lillard pulled up from nearly 40 feet out to end Game 5 of the Trail Blazers' Western Conference first-round series against the Oklahoma City Thunder, it sent the social media into a frenzy and it became an epic moment that won't soon be forgotten. George was the player defending Lillard at the time.

"That's a bad, bad shot", George said. "I don't care what anyone says". Whether it was a "good" or "bad" shot, it went in. But hey, he made it. "We live with that". However, Lillard clearly got the best of Westbrook in the matchup and he ended the series with an incredible walk-off 37-footer.

With the shot, Lillard finished the night with an even 50 points.

George described Lillard's dagger as a "bad shot" after the fifth - and final - game of the series.

National Basketball Association 3-point shooters are better than ever, and bolder than ever.

Damien Lillard's long-range 3-pointer at the buzzer Tuesday in Game 5 of the Portland Trail Blazers' first-round series with the Oklahoma City Thunder won the game and the series.

Damian Lillard thinks Paul George should have played better defense on this shot.

James has been a big fan of Lillard for a long time, even saying a year ago that he would help make Lillard appreciated if they were playing together. That trio combined to hit 71 of their 186 attempts on 30- to 40-footers this season, converting at a 38 percent clip while making up the entire top three in attempts from that distance.

"Yeah, that's a bad shot", George said according to Sports Illustrated.

Regardless of whether Lillard's game victor was a "bad, bad shot", one thing is for certain: Dame is a bad, bad man.
