In a closeout first-round matchup game against a hated opponent, Damian Lillard showed us again why he is so big-time. He dropped 50 points in Game 5 and topped it off with a buzzer-beating three to outscore OKC in the final seconds. After being swept last year, it was a true redemption story for Dame and the Blazers.
In case you didn't guess, the internet was ablaze with reactions from Lillard's performance. Here are the best of them:
As the Blazers enter the second round to face the Spurs or Nuggets, they pose a serious threat to go far this postseason. Of course, they will go as far as Dame takes them.
It was one heck of a night, to say the least. Among other things though, Dame Dolla showed the world just how dangerous he is when the lights get brightest.
