ICYMI: Buzzer Beater Madness: Damian Lillard Knocks Rockets out of Playoffs

This may be the best, if not biggest buzzer beating shot thus far in the NBA Playoffs. And we only say this because the playoffs aren't over until July.

Scene setter: Portland and Houston played late Friday night at the Rose Garden with the Blazers holding a 3-2 series lead. Houston takes a 98-96 lead on a layup by Chandler Parsons.

But 0.9 seconds were left on the clock.

That was enough for Portland. Damiam Lillard gets the inbounds pass, turns--and launches the ball towards the basket, well behind the 3-point line on the top left side of the court.

Lillard gets the shot off before the buzzer...

And it went in.

Game over. Blazers win 99-98 and win the best of seven series sending the over-hyped Rockets home for the summer.

Here's your video from , and it's pretty damn good...
