Damian Lillard Beats Pistons in OT

Lillard drained a fallaway last-second shot to help Portland to a 111-109 win over Detroit.

Damian Lillard Beats Pistons in OT

The Portland Trail Blazers have gotten off to one of the best starts in the NBA this season. They own the second-best record in the league at 21-4 behind only the Indiana Pacers and their 20-3 mark. When point guard Damian Lillard hits clutch game-winners in overtime, that certainly helps the cause.

Last night, the Trail Blazers took on the Detroit Pistons and went into overtime on the road. Lillard didn't have a great shooting night, going just 6-21 from the field (and 0-7 from three), but the final shot he made was the most important. The sequence of moves that he puts on Rodney Stuckey, who defended the play about as well as anyone possibly could, is mesmerizing. The fact that he put it all together, under control, and got that shot up and in just blew me away. 

Lillard is damn good, he knows it, and his stare afterwards lets everyone else know it too. If you haven't realized just how good Portland is yet, it's time to remove that veil of ignorance and stop sleeping on the Blazers.
