Lillard wins game with 3 at buzzer

Long-distance shots made by Damian Lillard in the first round of the NBA Playoffs

Torrey Craig suffered a broken nose after taking a shot to the face during Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals series between his Denver Nuggets and the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.

Jokic pushed Enes Kanter, who slammed into Craig with 43.5 seconds left on a made free throw.

Hood's fresh legs, along with his confidence and the trust from his teammates helped the Trail Blazers secure a quadruple overtime game with a 140-137 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

"That was the craziest game I have ever been a part of", said Lillard. "I had no idea that I'd end up in Portland in this type of situation".

Murray says the Nuggets may have to change their approach in order to regain the home-floor advantage this weekend, the same task they faced after losing at home to the Spurs in a series that eventually went to seven games, with the deciding game in Denver. Like a true coaching pro, he used the moment to point the finger back at what he saw as hard screens set by the Trail Blazers in the series.

"I'm just trusting myself, I just have confidence in myself", said Milwaukee's Most Valuable Player candidate Antetokounmpo.

"If you think about the four losses we've had in the postseason, we're shooting 32% from three in our losses", Malone stated.

Hood used his size to bury two pull up jumpers over the smaller Jamal Murray, before draining the go-ahead three-pointer with 17.8 seconds remaining.

One of the greatest games in National Basketball Association history essentially ended with Nikola Jokic splitting a pair of free throws, missing a chance to force a fifth overtime and sending the Nuggets home in defeat.

The Portland Trailblazers traded for Bonzi Wells draft rights from the Detroit Pistons, who took him eleventh overall out of Ball State.

But as the series continues, I wouldn't be surprised if we see the Trail Blazers take off and move onto the Western Conference Finals. Other times we'll verbally express it, or he'll be like, "Go take it" or 'I need one, I need one.' Or I'll tell him, 'I'm ready, come on'. Portland went into the break with just a 48-47 edge. "But that was a hell of a basketball game by two very good basketball teams".

"Our defense was great", Malone said. That continues what he's been doing in the postseason: 24.8 points, 12.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game.

Portland: Starting forwards Harkless and Al-Farouq Aminu combined for 10 points in the first quarter after being held to a combined four points in Game 1. "Shots weren't dropping for the whole second half so we have to be able to get to the rack or draw fouls".
