Video: Lillard Time Climbs the Stifle Tower, Leads Blazers to Victory

Damian Lillard's aggressive drive on Rudy Gobert late in the fourth quarter clinched a 115-111 Blazer victory over the Utah Jazz on Sunday.

Damian Lillard's bucket, around some uncharacteristically lax Utah defense, capped an explosive 68-point second half from the Blazers. And the "Lillard Time" layup finished off a nail-biter of a fourth quarter in which the teams battled through 15 ties and lead changes.

Portland's previous basket also came off a hard drive from Lillard.

He also added to his season-long highlight reel with a spectacular tomahawk dunk in the third quarter:

Lillard finished the game with 30 points and five assists. It was his fourth consecutive 30-plus point game, a feat no Blazer has accomplished since Clyde Drexler in 1991.

Tonight's win gave the Blazers a 3-1 season series victory over the Jazz, which could be crucial as the teams battle for playoff position.
