It's still Dame Time.

After dominating the seeding games at Walt Disney World Resort and then guiding the Portland Trail Blazers as they dispatched the Memphis Grizzlies in the play-in matchup, Damian Lillard led the Blazers to a victory over the top-seeded Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1 of their playoff series.

While Portland lost Game 2, Lillard's three-pointer from just inside half-court following a block by Hassan Whiteside during Game 1 topped House of Highlights' best plays from the opening week of the playoffs.

Check out the full list of the top 10 plays, including a spin and dunk by Giannis Antetokounmpo, an impressive finish by LeBron James and multiple Jayson Tatum highlights, one of which ended with an emphatic Jaylen Brown dunk.
