Damian Lillard continues to do unbelievable things in the bubble, and now it has the Portland Trail Blazers getting big playoff wins. Lillard scored 34 points to lead the Blazers to a 100-93 Game 1 win over the Western Conference’s top-seeded Los Angeles Lakers.

And, once again, Lillard broke out the incredible three-pointers. Lillard went 6-of-13 on threes, and his most amazing one came in a crucial sequence for Portland in the final minutes.

With the game tied 89-89, Portland’s Hassan Whiteside rejected a layup from LeBron James, and Lillard quickly drained another logo three at the other end.

He also nailed this long three to tie the game when Portland trailed 87-84 with under six minutes remaining.

Jusuf Nurkic — who had 16 points and 15 rebounds to play a big part in Portland’s win — correctly identified what time it was: Dame time.

Now, it will be very difficult to beat a team with LeBron James and Anthony Davis three more times in the best-of-seven series. But with Dame on an incredible heater like this, Portland has a chance. And especially if the Lakers’ offense doesn’t wake up.

Game 2 is on Thursday night at 9 p.m. ET in the bubble.
