Lillard – the NBA’s most clutch player – converted a three-point play with 16.5 seconds left. That stood as the game-winner in Portland’s 126-124 victory Wednesday when the Trail Blazers got a stop on the other end. DAME. AND.

If it wasn’t true before, for the past couple of years, it is these days: there is no one in the NBA — LeBron James, Kevin Durant, whoever — who is better with under a minute to go than Damian Lillard.

He continues to hit game-winners with ease, with his patented deep step-back three as unstoppable as ever with the game on the line.

That’s exactly what happened again on Wednesday night against the Golden State Warriors. With under 16 seconds to go and the Portland Trail Blazers down one, he hit this shot and barely blinked (also, a Mike Breen “BANG!”).

But look at what he did on the other end! A game-winning charge take! On Draymond Green!

There were some people who thought it was a block, but replay showed he was outside the restricted area and his feet were set. But here’s Steph Curry:

Lillard's 50 seals Blazers comeback, Jazz bounce back .
Damian Lillard delivered a 50-point performance and led a remarkable fourth quarter comeback as the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 125-124 on Tuesday. But Lillard then seized control of the contest down the stretch, rattling off 15 points in a 25-7 run for Portland including two ice-cool free throws with 1.2 seconds remaining to seal the Blazers comeback. "In the huddles we just kept telling each other that we were the more experienced team, and these are the kind of games we're capable of winning," Lillard said afterwards."We just stayed the course and showed a lot of resilience.
