Damian Lillard opened up about the crazy three-pointer he hit during the match against the Brooklyn Nets.
The superstar of the Portland Trail Blazers, who hit the three-pointer from the logo, explained his mindset behind his decision to shoot from such a long distance.
“Each time I saw a look, I don’t care how far it was or if somebody was close to me, if I had a sniff I was raising up and shooting it and that’s why I shot that one,” Lillard said after the game, via ClutchPoints.
Lillard and the Blazers survived a late thriller against the Nets (134-133) and will now play the Memphis Grizzlies for the final playoff spot in the West.
Lillard and Portland only need to win one game. The Grizzlies, meanwhile, need to win both games. The winner of the play-in will face the Los Angeles Lakers.
