Lillard, Portland, beats Cavs on last second shot

Portland point guard Damian Lillard pulled up and drilled a three-pointer with less than one second on the clock to lift the Trailblazers to a 119-116 win over the Cavaliers at the Q. After a review, officials put .4 seconds left on the clock for the Cavs, but Kyrie Irving's heave went off the iron to end the game.

The Blazers came in with the best record in the NBA, 21-4, but the Cavs gave them all they could handle. Dion Waiters tied the game at 101 with 6:05 to play in the game, Waiters scored 25 off the bench. Portland then managed to open up a 114-104 lead before Cleveland tied the game again.

Irving hit twice from three point territory and then converted a three point play on a lay up and foul. With Cleveland trailing by two, Irving drove the lane again, but dished the ball to Anderson Varejao who tied the game at 116 with a lay up.

Seconds later Lillard hit his game decided shot.

Irving and Waiters lead the Cavs with 25 each, Lillard poured in a game-high 36 to go with 10 assists and eight rebounds.
