Damian Lillard rose to the occasion once again for the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday, leading the team with an easy 34 points and some clutch heroics. With just over five minutes left in the fourth quarter, “Logo Lillard” pulled up from 30 feet to tie the game at 87 apiece. The game feed caught Lillard doing a shimmy dance right after hitting from 3-point land:

It turns out, the song “Blow the Whistle” by Too Short played in the arena, which prompted Lillard’s dance moves, he explained after the game:
"When Too Short came on, I was feeling good. My hometown, East Oakland was being represented in the arena, so I had to show my love"— Orlando Sanchez (@orlandokgw) August 19, 2020
