Many of Dame’s career highlights include buzzer-beating threes (see OKC Thunder and Houston Rockets). This moment is a quick switch up though, filling the stat sheet in other ways.
On this play, Golden State Warriors Guard Alec Burks dribbled up to the three-point line looking to launch before the third quarter buzzer. Little did he know, Damian Lillard was trailing him. Doing his best LeBron James impression, Dame came out of nowhere with all of his momentum and elevation. Before Burks could the crescendo of his jump shot, Lillard skied to swat the ball out of bounds. The emphatic block played to Damian’s clutch gene, as it was timed perfectly at the 3rd quarter buzzer.
The sneakers Lillard wore for this dunk was the adidas Dame 6. This utilizes Lightstrike cushioning, which aims to provide the best combination of step-in comfort and lightweight cushioning on the market.
