The Portland Trail Blazers beat the Chicago Bulls 123-122 on Saturday night after Damian Lillard hit a three-point buzzer beater for the win.
After a back-and-forth game that looked like a sure loss, Dame did what Dame does and hit an amazing shot to turn defeat into victory.
The win left Lillard’s teammates in the mood to celebrate. They showered him with excitement—and water from their water bottles—as he entered the locker room after the game.
