Video: Blazers' Damian Lillard throws down dunk over Celtics' Tyler Zeller

Friday January 23rd, 2015

Blazers guard Damian Lillard did it again on Thursday, throwing down his third big dunk of January in a 90-89 home loss to the Celtics.

After slamming on the Lakers and the Kings recently, Lillard turned his attention to Boston's seven-foot center, Tyler Zeller

With just seconds remaining in the third quarter and Portland leading 70-67, Lillard used a spin move at the top of the key to beat Avery Bradley into the paint. Once there, he took two long strides before lift off, throwing down a right-handed dunk before Zeller was able to come over to help from the right block.

The Celtics had the last laugh, though, as Evan Turner hit a last-second, game-winning three-pointer on a broken play to steal the road victory.

Lillard led the Blazers, who were without LaMarcus Aldridge due to a thumb injury, by posting a game-high 21 points, seven assists and six rebounds. Wesley Matthews added 18 points and three rebounds.

Bradley led Boston with a team-high 18 points, four rebounds and four assists. Turner finished with 10 points, eight assists and six rebounds.
