Damian Lillard gave coldest wave to Thunder after incredible shot
Damian Lillard could not have been more spectacular on Tuesday night, and he capped off his incredible performance with a shot for the ages.
The Portland Trail Blazers point guard made a 3-pointer from way downtown at the buzzer to give his team a 118-115 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series. Then he gave the Thunder bench the coldest wave ever after making the shot, telling them adios after knocking them out of the playoffs.

It doesn’t get colder and cooler than that.
Lillard scored 50 points in the game on 17/33 shooting, including 10 threes. The 50 points were a franchise playoff record, no surprise. The stellar performance and series win had to have been especially satisfying after all the back-and-forth between him and Russell Westbrook.
