What a finish in Portland.

Down three with just 7.6 seconds left Damian Lillard — as clutch a shooter as there is in the league — blew the lid off the Moda Center with a four-point play.

It left just 3.5 seconds left, and it says everything you need to know about the soon-to-be Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns that the Timberwolves got him the rock. And he delivered. (Portland’s mistake was that Al-Farouq Aminu never stood a chance one-on-one against Towns.)
