Portland Trail Blazers Damian Lillard has sent the team to the Western Conference semifinals with an amazing 3 pointer on the buzzer.
Portland were playing the Houston Rockets and were down 96-98 to the Texans until Lillard literally pulled a rabbit out of his hat to make the final score 99-98.
You can see the video above.
It’s the first time the Blazers had made the playoff series since 2011, and the first time it has qualified to go through to the Western Conference semis in 14.
Twitter users were amazing by the 3 pointer, with Portland ranking 2nd on Twitter early May 3rd, complete with a range of responses.
Damian Lillard has ice in his veins. Glad to see Portland moving on in the playoffs. #NBA #PORvsHOU

Just saw Dame's shot to win it for Portland. Hate being on the wrong side of that and it kept us from a big sweep of the card.
