Damian Lillard just made the NBA playoffs even more intense.

Last night, the Portland Trail Blazers were up against the Houston Rockets in Game 6 of the series. With Houston up two, and nine tenths of a second on the clock, the Blazers point guard took an all-or-nothing 3-point shot, and the entire crowd followed its beautiful arc. And then, finally, Blazers fans exhaled.

In the clip, you can see Lillard clap his hands for the pass, as if to say, “I got this.”

Even sweeter, it’s the first time the team’s won a playoff series in 14 years. They now advance into the Western Conference semifinals.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for basketball fans. Right, Drake?
