With 6.9 seconds left on the clock, Los Angeles Lakers forward Wesley Johnson took a Kent Bazeman lob for the go-ahead score in a 107-106 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.
After the game, Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts talked about the loss and the last few plays.
On the game itself:
“It’s a disappointing loss. I thought the Lakers played really well. They kept the pressure on us the whole game. They came out with more energy to start with and they sustained it throughout the whole game. In the second half, we did a good job defensively but couldn’t quite get over the hump. We just weren’t good enough tonight.”
On Lillard’s Last Possession:
“I just wanted to get him a shot. I probably should have run something different. When you’re up there and you have the ball, whatever’s available is available. You can’t second guess that. “I just wanted to give him an opportunity to get a shot off. I felt like any pick and roll, they probably would have trapped it. I felt like the best opportunity for us was for him to try to get a shot off.”
On Lakers Last Offensive Possession:
“I thought it was really good execution. Farmar set a good screen on LA. LA got there, it was a very well executed play. LA was a couple inches below the ball. It was a great pass. Nic was pressuring the ball. It was a good play and well executed.”
