The Portland Trail Blazers can say what they want about Dame Lillard being their unquestioned clutch player, but CJ McCollum might have something to say about that.
Now he's got the clutch shot to prove it too.
Down by one with only a few seconds left on the clock, McCollum drained an off-balance floater that gave the the Trail Blazers a dramatic 114-113 win over the Mavs.
Lillard made the series-ending shot in the playoffs a few years ago, but McCollum is proving to be their go-to guy this year.
He went shot-for-shot with Dirk Nowitzki in the fourth quarter on this night, and wound up getting the final shot that mattered most.
Sorry Dame. There's a new clutch performer in Rip City.
