Damian Lillard’s 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds remaining, lifted the Portland Trail Blazers to a 119-116 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.
“That was cold-blooded,” Cleveland guard Dion Waiters said. “We knew Lillard was getting the ball. That was a big-time shot.”
Lillard scored 36 points, making a career-high eight 3-pointers. The 2013 NBA Rookie of the Year also made the game-winning shot to give Portland a 111-109 overtime victory over Detroit on Sunday.
Portland (22-4) has the best record in the NBA and is 11-0 against the Eastern Conference.
