Damian Lillard smashed this dunk over the Washington Wizards with 2:21 left pulling the Blazers to 91-90. Unfortunately the Blazers fell short in the long run after the Wiz’ answered with three more critical plays and a buzzer-beating 3 pointer by Jordan Crawford to put the icing on the cake.

Per ESPN:

His buzzer-beating 3-pointer was still under review but Jordan Crawford knew it was good. And so did his Washington Wizards teammates, who engulfed him in a dogpile on the floor of the Rose Garden.

“If I could get the game ball you know I would keep it,” Crawford said after his 30-foot jumper beat the clock and gave Washington a 98-95 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night.

Crawford’s fadeaway and a corner 3-pointer gave the Wizards an 82-75 lead, their largest to that point, with just more than 7 minutes left in the game.

Rookie Damian Lillard‘s dunk pulled the Blazers to 91-90 with 2:21 left. Former Blazer Martell Webster and John Wall answered with consecutive dunks, but Lillard added a layup and Wesley Matthews hit a 3-pointer to tie it with 7.9 seconds left.

Crawford’s game winner was reviewed but it didn’t stop the Wizards’ celebration.

“I just wanted to get a clean look, make a good play,” Crawford said. “John (Wall) set the play; we wanted to get the defense moving and I got open. Tonight I was able to make it. I knew that shot had a chance.”
