Highlights: Damian Lillard Rediscovers His Jumper, Scores 16 Points in Fourth

After three quarters of nearly unwatchable basketball from the Los Angeles Clippers and the Portland Trail Blazers in Wednesday night's 2016 NBA Playoffs Game 5 match-up, Damian Lillard decided he was going to be the match to the Clippers' powder keg.

Heading into the 4th quarter, Lillard was a near non-factor before going full blown supernova- hitting 4-of-6 from beyond the arc and 6-of-10 for the period. Ultimately finishing with 16 points in that quarter, and 22 points on the night. His offensive outburst assured the Trail Blazers a victory 108-98 as they now head home to Portland for the chance to close out the series in Game 6.
