Lillard on 37-foot buzzer shot: 'The last word'

PORTLAND -- It's a shot that will be replayed for years to come, one of the all-time postseason moments as Damian Lillard closed the Oklahoma City Thunder in five games from almost 40 feet out to give himself an even 50 points and berth in the second round.

The official play-by-play lists it as a 37-foot shot, but it hung in the air for nearly two seconds, hitting the bottom of the net as the buzzer expired to lift the Trail Blazers in Game 5, 118-115.

"It was a great feeling when it left my hands," Lillard said.
