Trail Blazers, Warriors ending was one of best of season (VIDEO)

This is why I can’t wait for the playoffs, more games like this.

Portland locked up the fifth seed in the West (and a likely date with Houston) with a 119-117 overtime win. The game had everything — 47 points from Stephen Curry, LaMarcus Aldridge making plays, Wes Mathews making circus shots, Klay Thompson knocking down shots, and of course a step back three from Draymond Green to send the game into overtime. It was brilliant

Golden State had their chances (particularly thanks to Damian Lillard‘s odd chose to go early in the shot clock on the penultimate possession of the game), but Andre Iguodala missed a good look at a three to win it and Portland hangs

The Warriors seem destined to meet the Clippers in the first round — that will be the best series of any first-round matchup.
