The Trail Blazers’ offense unraveled in the fourth quarter allowing the Thunder to secure a crucial Game 3 victory to push the series to 2-1. Reserve guard Dennis Schroder attempted to add salt to Portland’s wound by mocking Damian Lillard’s signature “Dame time” celebration. With OKC out in front late in the game, Schroder tapped his wrist as he passed Lillard near center court.

After the game, Lillard responded to Schroder’s antics (via @NBAonTNT).

Schroder fulfilled defensive duties against Lillard for the majority of his time on the court in Game 3. The former Hawks point guard finished with 17 points and six assists in the Thunder’s win on Friday.

Lillard, who finished with 32 points in the loss, will get a chance to respond to Schroder’s actions on the court when the two teams meet again on Sunday.
