Karl-Anthony Towns upstages Lillard on game-winning shot

The Portland Trail Blazers and Minnesota Timberwolves were locked in a tight one on Saturday night and the game came down to two incredible shots. The first one came from Damian Lillard who not only hit a three-pointer to tie the game, but got fouled and hit the free throw to go up one.

That gave Portland a 105-104 lead with 3.5 seconds left in the game. Not to be outdone, Karl-Anthony Towns set himself up in the post and did what he knows best — take advantage of a mismatch.
