Damian Lillard eliminates Thunder with 37-footer at buzzer (1:10)

With the game tied at 115-115, Damian Lillard pulls up from way downtown to sink the game winner and eliminate the Thunder. (1:10)

In the final seconds of Game 5 between the third-seed Portland Trail Blazers and sixth-seed Oklahoma City Thunder, the score was tied at 115. Damian Lillard went one-on-one with Paul George before letting the clock expire as he drained a 37-foot 3-pointer to give the Trail Blazers a 118-115 win. The win clinched a second-round berth for the Blazers, their first playoff series win in three years.

The Trail Blazers' official Twitter account eloquently summed up what transpired.

NBA players were equally stunned by Lillard's incredible shot.

Meanwhile, Chandler Parsons -- who was on the wrong end of Lillard's previous series-clinching buzzer-beater in 2014 -- sent his condolences to the Thunder.
