The clock struck midnight on Lillard Time tonight as the Minnesota Timberwolves stole a last second win from the Portland Trail Blazers. Karl-Anthony Towns hit a lay-up with 2.1 seconds to go to seal a Minnesota 106-105 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.
Towns' game winning basket came seconds after Damian Lillard seemingly stole the contest with a four-point play to put the Blazers ahead 105-104 with 3.5 seconds to go.
With this loss, the Blazers cede control of their own destiny in the Western Conference playoff race. They can still clinch the sixth seed with a win on Wednesday or a loss by the Memphis Grizzlies, but the Dallas Mavericks will own the fifth seed if they win out.
