As time expired in the first half of Monday night's game between Portland and Memphis, Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard shook two Memphis defenders with a spin move and unreal finish at the hoop. 

Fighting to keep his team's season alive, Lillard steam-rolled Beno Udrih, followed by a belated tandem of Tony Allen and Marc Gasol. The up-and-under finish put Portland up 55-46. 

Memphis went on an 18-2 run afterward and led Portland in the third quarter. With a win Monday, Memphis would win the series and advance to the second round of the NBA playoffs to face Golden State.
