The Portland Trail Blazers’ Damian Lillard nailed a catch-and-shoot three at the buzzer to eliminate the Houston Rockets from the playoffs on Friday night at the Moda Center.
Trailing 98-96, Lillard caught an inbounds pass with 0.9 seconds left, and got off a deep three-point shot right before the buzzer. Swish, for a Trail Blazers series-clinching victory. It was also Lillard’s sixth (and certainly most memorable) three-pointer of the game.
Above you can see video of the ESPN broadcast of the play, and below is video is from Ben Golliver of what it was like to see the play from the Moda Center stands:
These NBA playoffs have been incredible, and that should only continue with five game sevens to come. One of the game seven matchups features the Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs, and the Trail Blazers will face the winner of that series in the second round.
