"As the hockey playoffs have been totally insane. And only at a thousand times better than the basketball playoffs as the basketball playoffs. Give us very little in terms of drama and enthusiasm that doesn't somehow involve Jared Dudley last night. Finally, we got a moment to moment where Damian Lillard ends Russell Westbrook. And Jim in a way that's going to echo because you rarely see the finish to a game that that one was. So let's start here for those of you are just joining us in weren't up for the late game San Gundy's in with us, and that was an assassin streak, and I also agree with Paul George that it was a bad shot and everything that STAN Van Gundy hates about today's basketball. As Lillard has been good on that shot this postseason. I think Rachel Nickell said eight of twelve on that shot while everyone in the playoffs. Has been terrible the shot went in right? Yes. Yeah. It's a good shot. It didn't. And it didn't luck its way. And that was nothing but net I mean. For damian. Listen, how good is shot is is relative to the person shooting it. I mean, we've said this for years with the Golden State Warriors and Steph curry in particular the shots. He takes a lot of them are bad shots for everybody else. But that doesn't mean they're a bad shot. I mean, the shot Lillard took is not a bad shot for him. I'm not saying it's a real high percentage shot, but it's certainly not a bad shot for Damian Lillard, a buzzer beater that wins the series that gets them to fifty points. Does it at home and the best part of the shot was right after the shot when he weighed goodbye to the entire. I'm not even sure that was the best part of the reaction the picture. They took him in the middle of the thing is going to become a mean, it's going to become a gift where everyone else's joyous. And he's like, that's right. I'm Damian Lillard. I just did that I just napped Russell Westbrook over my knee, Paul, George you could take him with you. That was the best thing, Dan is that Damian Lillard, you know, he went the whole series and even at the end it was pretty appre understated reaction. I mean, this is not a guy that doesn't the does much talking. He's not a guy that promotes himself. And if you listen to what his teammates say about him long before this series. It's incredible. And Terry Stotts said he's the best star leader in the league the way he is with his teammates, and coaches and everybody else, and I really enjoyed it. Because this guy is the tip. Asus of what we see with with a lot of the stars. Now. I mean, they get swept two years in a row. He doesn't throw anybody under the bus. He comes out in support of his coach. He doesn't demand a trade. He doesn't talk about he needs more around him. He said this is just something we had to go through. And I mean, just incredibly different than what we see from almost all of the other great players. Stan lowered is the story today. No question that game. No at don't ask why was up watching that game. But I was watching that game to have the blazers. I mean, just go on an incredible run. And then Oklahoma City comes back. And they get themselves. I think a double digit lead Paul George played fantastic. Well, westbrook. We're going to go back to having the same conversation. He did the thing last night that made Durant leave he did. Although he hit a huge three down the stretch there after Lillard came down and hit a three. So it was just a great game with a bag of fourth game. And a great game with maybe one of the best finishes we've ever seen in this stand stamping Gandhi. And with us whole show today. This is how people become stars because you rarely have that moment wants to end another team season. He's now done it twice. Right. He's done it twice. Now where it's a buzzer beater that finishes the opposing team's season. And this is an interesting stat since Westbrook told Lillard telled Lillard that he quote, I've been busting that asks for years that was January twenty second since then that's Westbrook saying it's a Lillard January twenty second I've been busting that ask for years..

He said this is just something we had to go through. And I mean, just in- incredibly different than what we see from almost all of the other great players. Stan Lillard is the story today. No question that game though. At don't ask why was up watching that game. But I was watching that game to have the blazers. I mean, just go on an incredible run. And then Oklahoma City comes back. Back and they get themselves. I think a double digit lead Paul George played fantastic. Well, westbrook. We're going to go back to having the same conversation Westbrook. He did the thing last night that made Durant leave. He did. Although he hit a huge three down the stretch there after Lillard came down and hit a three. So it was just a great game. It was a bag of fourth game. And a great game with maybe wanna best finishes we've ever seen it this stand standing Gandhi. And with us whole show today. This is how people become stars because you rarely have that moment wants to end another team season. He's now done it twice. Right. He's done it twice. Now where it's a buzzer beater that finishes the opposing team's season. And this is an interesting stat since Westbrook told Lillard telled Lillard that he quote, I've been busting that asks for years that was January twenty second since then that's Westbrook saying it's a Lillard January twenty second I've been busting that ask for years. Damian Lillard has scored thirty one fifty thirty twenty nine twenty four and on westbound and last night at the end, they just took Westbrook off of them and said Paul please handle that. Because westbrook. Can't you know? It was funny stand up certain you saw this Paul George realizes that he's not defending Lillard far enough out at so he takes an extra step out at it still wasn't far enough because Lillard just took another just that bag. It was it was just incredible. And that's an incredible stats. Paul George was defending his defense. They're saying it was a bad shot. And then we have that sound right here on one second. I mean, that's a bash. With anybody says dash. Okay. He made it that story won't be told. It was a bash. Live with what he's he's. Right. I mean, look I mean, you're not going to stop thirty seven foot jump shots. I mean, this idea that even a great defender Paul George can take away everything from player like Damian Lillard is not realistic. Paul George played that fine. I mean, if the shot to beat you has to be that shot over Paul George who got a decent contest on it from thirty seven feet. Look. I mean, give the guy do and head home doklam city and get ready for next year. Paul George has nothing to be ashamed of on that last play and go into Dan's point. They really haven't had Westbrook on Lillard for much of the series. I mean as soon as Schreuder comes into the game Schreuder and Paul George guard McCullum and Lillard, and they find somewhere to hide Russell Westbrook. So. Russell does a lot more talking than Damian and Damian's gotten a lot more done. So that's sort of how that series went. You mentioned Schreuder and Damian Lillard mentioned him when he was being asked why he waved? This was an assassin streak like everything that Lillard did after this game was perfect including the sound the series is over and I'll just waving goodbye on. And after game three, you know, they Dennis Schroder was out there point to his wrist. They was out there doing all these celebrations and doing all this stuff, and we kept our composure and after one win now is what they decide to do. And we was just like, okay. Well, we wanna do is win four games when we win. Those four games is not going to be nothing to talk about. So that's what that was Paul George van something though. He did he did he went to guts a bad shot..
