DAME TIME!

Over the years Damian Lillard has given fans a host of clutch performances and today's featured #NBATogetherLive game is right up there.

In December 2014, in a matchup with fellow All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook, Lillard scored 40 points, including the game-tying three-pointer with three seconds left in regulation to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a 115-111 win.

He added 11 assists and six rebounds, shooting 8-of-12 from the three-point line and scored seven points in the extra period.

"Every time we get in a situation like that, I try to find a spot on the floor where I feel like I can get to for sure, and tonight was just another one of those times," Lillard said of his clutch three-pointer.

Watch the game below:

For the Thunder, who were missing Kevin Durant (sprained ankle), Westbrook scored a season-high 40 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists, but missed a potential game-winner at the end of regulation, before fouling out with 1:39 left in overtime.

The Blazers trailed by as many as 13 points in the fourth quarter, before rallying behind Lillard.

Westbrook's jumper gave the Thunder a 91-78 lead with 5:04 remaining in regulation, holding onto a 95-85 lead with 1:40 left......then it was DAME TIME.

Lillard reeled off six straight points in a 34-second span, before draining the clutch three-pointer to tie the game at 98-98.

"I was just pointing to the watch," Lillard said of his post-shot celebration. "That's 'Lillard Time.' That was the first time anybody's seen that. I was just feeling myself a little bit at the moment."
