Blazers star Damian Lillard reacts to crazy WNBA game-winner
Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard has made a reputation as one of the most clutch players in the NBA. He has hit several game-winners and buzzer-beaters throughout the course of his career, with the most recent one being this ridiculous near-half-court 3-pointer to eliminate the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round of the 2019 playoffs.
However, even Lillard was surprised to see other people make clutch shots. He recently reacted to the game-winner made by reigning WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year Dearica Hamby, who propelled the Las Vegas Aces past the Chicago Sky 93-92.
Crazy ain’t the word lol https://t.co/WAjdpLmqXg

Remarkably, the win eliminated the Sky and catapulted the Aces to the semifinals where they will face the Washington Mystics.
Liz Cambage poured in 23 points and 17 rebounds, while Hamby finished as the team’s second leading scorer with 17 markers to go along with four rebounds and five assists.
Lillard had his fair share of game-winners, so for him to react that way to the game-winner speaks volume about the quality of WNBA basketball.
Plenty of NBA stars has shown their support to the WNBA, and it’s undoubtedly nice to see players like Lillard watch the game and spread out the word about the league.
