Spencer Dinwiddie thinks Damian Lillard has ‘coldest’ buzzer-beater over the last 3 seasons

Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie made his desire for a video of recent NBA game-winners repeatedly known .

Finally, he got his wish. After initially saying they would look into it, NBA TV’s Twitter account shared a highlight reel of buzzer-beaters from the last three seasons and asked Dinwiddie to pick his personal favorite.

The Nets rising star went with an undeniable pick: Damian Lillard’s unforgettable three over Paul George to send the Oklahoma City Thunder home in Game 5 of their First Round playoffs series last April (12:37 in the video).

It was the final moment in a OKC uniform for Russell Westbrook and George. The shot also gave Dame 50 points for the clincher.

Dame went off for 33.0 points (.461/.481/.846 shooting), 6.0 assists and 2.4 steals per game in the Blazers’ 4-1 series victory. Portland would defeat the Denver Nuggets in seven games before being swept by the Golden State Warriors in the conference finals.

More importantly, Dame’s cold-blooded dagger produced that perfect and iconic meme.

Lillard is the unique owner of two series-ending buzzer-beating threes. He also hit a bonkers triple to send James Harden, Dwight Howard, and the Houston Rockets packing in Game 6 of the first round in 2014.

Spencer Dinwiddie, like Lillard, is no stranger to clutch buckets. The Nets guard makes his own appearance in the video — a game-winning floater to defeat the Detroit Pistons on Jan. 18 (2:20).

This season, the 26-year-old LA native knocked down a mid-ranger on Cedi Osman to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers on Nov. 25, then nailed a jumper in the final seconds to help the Nets take down the Indiana Pacers on Feb. 10.
