Dirk Nowitzki had his best game of the season against the Portland Trail Blazers Tuesday night. Unfortunately, LaMarcus Aldridge snatched victory away from him with a buzzer-beating turn-around jumper to give Portland the win over the Dallas Mavericks, 106-104.

The Blazers came back from a 21-point third-quarter deficit, and the final 30 seconds of the contest devolved into an absolute ridiculous back-and-forth of bone-shatteringly thrilling basketball.

Nicolas Batum drained a three-pointer to tie the game at 101, but Dirk went and hit what seemed to be a dagger of a three-pointer on the other end.

Then came LaMacrus Aldridge's time to shine.

The long-ball from Aldridge was not only his first three-pointer of the season, but just the 20th three of his career.

Then came the buzzer-beater to seal the deal.

Aldridge's three-pointer was the first he had hit since April 9th, 2012. Just three days prior to that particular game, he knocked down a buzzer beater against, you guessed it, the Dallas Mavericks.

Portland has been on a wild tear this season playing in close games like these. They've been in six overtime games thus far, along with 12 games decided by three points or less.
