Damian Lillard is clutch.
We knew that already — ask OKC — but he showed it again against Phoenix on a driving layup in the final minute where Aron Baynes blocking foul on gave Lillard the and-1 and eventually a 111-110 win against Phoenix.

Phoenix challenged the blocking call, and while Baynes was outside the restricted area, the referees decided he was moving. The call stood.
The Suns got one last shot at a game-winner but Ricky Rubio missed a three and Portland got the win.
CJ McCollum had 30 to lead Portland, carrying the team while Lillard battled foul trouble for parts of the game. Kelly Oubre Jr. had 24 to lead Portland, including a clutch four-point play in the final minute that had the Suns up two. Until Lillard’s heroics.
