Blazers at Pistons final score: Blazers, Lillard win it in overtime 111-109

Damian Lillard hit a spinning, fadeaway jumper from 14 feet away with just one-tenth of a second to play in overtime to give the Portland Trail Blazers a 111-109 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday (you can watch the shot here).

Lillard finished with 23 points and seven assists while LaMarcus Aldridge continued to look like an MVP candidate, finishing with 27 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks.

Nicholas Batum added 18 points, Robin Lopez had 12 points and 13 rebounds and Wesley Matthews had 14 points.

Josh Smith had a huge night for the Pistons, scoring a game-high 31 points and grabbing seven rebounds. Greg Monroe had 17 points and seven rebounds, Andre Drummond scored 13 points and grabbed 14 rebounds and Brandon Jennings had 15 points and 10 assists.

The Blazers took an early first quarter lead, but the Pistons battled back, building a 13-point fourth quarter lead. The Blazers used a 13-4 run, started by two Mo Williams’ three-pointers to get back in the game and sent it to overtime on two free throws from Matthews.

Before Lillard won the game in overtime, Rodney Stuckey tied it on a 20-footer with 13 seconds left.

The Blazers are now 21-4 while the Pistons fall to 11-14.
