He's nicknamed Logo Lillard for a reason.
With the Portland Trail Blazers struggling to find offense, Damian Lillard took it upon himself to create some offense by shooting a standstill, 37-foot three-pointer from the Nuggets logo.
Yeah, it went in.
During the preseason, Lillard told reporters he planned to take a shot from half-court this season and this shot was pretty dang close to it.
“I told him that I’m going to do it…” Lillard said. “Terry, he sees me in here every day. I work on my game. I address the things that I feel like I could do better, but the things that I do well, I just keep getting better at it, I spend time doing and I try to expand on that.”
He hit multiple half-court shots during the 2021 NBA All-Star game, but the playoffs is a whole different beast.
When the shot went in, social media lost its collective mind, and for good reason.
