Portland Trail Blazers sophomore point guard Damian Lillard drained a game-winning three-pointer to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 119-116, Tuesday.

Lillard didn't fool around, pulling up for a deep straightaway three with nearly no time left on the clock. He had a monster game, notching 36 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds while making 8-of-12 attempts from beyond the arc.

The youngster also hit a game-winning jumper in overtime against the Detroit Pistons on Sunday.

With the win over the Cavs, the Trail Blazers improved to 11-0 this season against Eastern Conference opponents.
