Watch Damian Lillard singlehandedly crush the Thunder
On Sunday night, Damian Lillard looked like the best player in the world. He exploded for 31 points and nine assists against Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder, owners of one of the league's best defenses.
What makes the performance that much more impressive is that Lillard shined brightest down the stretch, sinking some incredible buckets against a defense that was solely focused on preventing him from going off.
Lillard scored 17 points in just over nine fourth-quarter minutes, draining five of his eight attempts from behind the three-point line. It was incredible.
