The shot alone is a worthy candidate for greatest buzzer-beater, but the surrounding circumstances elevate it to another level. Four things that resulted from this shot: 

  1. Damian Lillard became the only player ever to make two series-ending, buzzer-beating shots. Both came at home. The first was against the Rockets in 2014. 

  2. Lillard gave a wave colder than Revere Beach in January.
