Two awesome things happened at the end of the back-and-forth fourth quarter between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night. First and foremost, Damian Lillard hit yet another game-winner with the game clock ticking down, launching a triple from well beyond the top of the arc to that gave Portland a 119-116 victory. It’s getting to be something of a habit for Lillard, who hit the last shot in overtime on Sunday against the Pistons to win the game for the Blazers.

Pretty awesome, undoubtedly. And a shot like that deserves a congratulations of the highest, classiest order — a congratulations that Robin Lopez was more than happy to offer.
A classically understated congratulations, like a proud papa greeting a recent college graduate. How perfectly Robin Lopez. How perfectly Blazers.
