Damian Lillard's ice cold victory stare is now a meme

Fans had a lot of'next question jokes for Russell Westbrook after he struggled in ugly loss

"After Game 3, we were in the locker room saying they lived at the free throw line and all this stuff, but Game 4, we're not talking to nobody but ourselves", Lillard said. After his wave, Lillard was mobbed by his teammates and the crowd chanted "MVP!"

The shot was reminiscent of Lillard's game-winner against your Houston Rockets in Game 6 of the first round of the 2014 National Basketball Association playoffs. "If we're healthy", he said, "We're good". "And my part in it, I think, was probably my most important performance".

Now, the Blazers find themselves needing just one win in the next three games, two of them at home, to advance.

Regardless, the Trail Blazers still lead the series 2-1 and maintain the confidence of the sportsbooks, albeit by a very close margin.

It was a disappointing end to the season for Westbrook, who added a triple-double comprising 29 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists. "We let this one slip away but it is what it is".

The Thunder led 90-88 going into the final quarter.

Against the spread: Bettors can get a greater number on the Blazers with -110 odds to cover the -3.5-point spread.

Guys like Jake Layman, Seth Curry, Zach Collins, and Enes Kanter have all stepped up over the course of the season to be able to contribute to a squad that is needed more than just Lillard and McCollum.

The two teams had yet another heated battled in Game 3 with the Thunder likely testing the Trail Blazers' patience in the process. I wouldn't be shocked if Westbrook and PG13 go off and give themselves a chance, but these four games have been controlled by the Trial Blazers and they get much easier offense.

"I mean, it was a bad shot", George grumbled. The Trail Blazers defeated the Thunder 111-98.

He scored eight points on 2-for-9 shooting and in the midst of that, the Thunder started their run to take over the lead. He missed his final 10 shots.

PG13 poured in 15 first quarter points.

"The game, the series was over and that was it", Lillard told reporters after the game, per ESPN.com.

The victor of the Houston-Utah series will face the victor of the Golden State Warriors-Los Angeles Clippers series.

Trail Blazers: Lillard missed his first six shots. But when the Thunder played perhaps one of their best games of the postseason, it was Lillard's 50-point performance that moved them forward.

Lillard sealed a remarkable 50-point night with a 37-foot missile over Paul George's outstretched right hand.

According to oddsmakers, the Blazers are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -4 points against the Thunder.

Lillard resumed his dominance by opening the second half with a deep 32-footer on Portland's first possession.

Kanter said afterward the original injury happened in the opening quarter and may be a separation.

"We're a lot more mature than we were in past years", McCollum said. I applauded Donovan when he called a first quarter timeout midway through the Thunder possession when it was obvious that Westbrook wasn't running the offense.

Damian Lillard is the best Portland Trail Blazers player of all time. His effort on Tuesday night surpasses his previous playoff high of 40 set against the Warriors in 2016.

It generally takes a playoff series to create a rivalry between two teams.

"Even with the pain, he was posting up", Portland coach Terry Stotts said.

The fans were going one step beyond delirious.
