League Reacts to Damian Lillard's Legendary Performance: "This is a spiritual experience!"

An historic performance by Damian Lillard couldn't prevent the Portland Trail Blazers from dropping a double-OT thriller to the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 Tuesday night.

Never before in NBA playoff history has a player hit a dozen three-pointers, while his combination of 55 points with double-digit assists is another record-setting mark. 

Lillard's legendary outburst didn't escape the notice of players all around the Association.



It even got to the point where the Nuggets were thanking their lucky stars when Dame finally missed. 

The question now is, will Lillard need another historic game to avoid elimination in Game 6?
