Damian Lillard Laughs Off Paul George’s Bitter Opinion Of His Buzzer-Beater

Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard nails clutch buzzer-beater to knock Oklahoma City Thunder out of NBA playoffs

The basketball media world exploded last night after Portland Trailblazers guard Damian Lillard drilled a 37-foot buzzer-beating jump shot to win the game and finish his team's NBA playoff series with the Oklahoma City Thunder. George was the player defending Lillard at the time. After saying that it was, indeed, a "good shot", Lillard broke down how he works on being lethal from deep before giving his thoughts on George's comments specifically. On the other, the numbers do say that's generally not a great shot and if someone hits it, you're best to tip your cap, shrug, and accept the consequences.

Paul George, the Thunder forward guarding Lillard during the final seconds of the game, called Lillard's three-pointer a "bad, bad shot", despite the guard shooting for 8-of-12 from 30-plus feet this postseason. "We live with that".

"Yeah, that's a bad shot", George said according to Sports Illustrated. The game-winning shot from beyond the arc was his 10th long-range bomb of the night.




"For him to say that's a bad shot, that's just kind of being a poor sport", Lillard said.

Dudes like Lillard, Curry and Trae Young are special because their range extends far beyond what was normal or acceptable even five years ago. It was the second-series victor of Lillard's career, as he previously sent Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets home at the buzzer in 2014. They'll face either the Denver Nuggets or San Antonio Spurs.
