They won EVERY overtime game this season so far:

vs. Hou 95 - 85
vs. Hou 119 - 117
vs. CLE 118 - 117 (double OT)
vs. CHA 118 - 112

Tow of them were against us. Ugh...still hurts...

Portland was down 18 with 5 minutes left in the regulation. Charlotte should have never allowed the game to go into OT.

The whole Portland team seem clutch.

I watched the ending to both Cavs and Cats. Lillard seemed to struggle down the stretch in both making bad decisions/shots/FTs but he was saved by his teammates hitting clutch 3s (Batum, Babbit). Aldridge with some clutch boards and tips and Matthew hitting his FTs.

They're playing over their heads. OT games are basically coin flips, yet they win every one?

Their point differential is bad and they're going to most likely miss the playoffs.

The poise and leadership qualities of Damian Lillard have to have surpassed managements expectations.

He knows how to handle himself in closing seconds of a period.

You see on countless occasions, Lillard blowing by his defender without the need for a screen, finishing the play strong at the rim or calmly creating enough space to get of his mid range jumper.

His play in the 4th and OT have been crucial in many games. He isn't exempt from making some rookie mental errors, but he is on a good path to becoming a superstar.

He looked good when he beat us in OT but against the Cavs and Cats toward the end he was forcing it too much I thought, just bad shots/turnovers in general. I'm not going to dig into him for it though since he is a rookie after all. He definitely has superstar potential.

Agree, felt sorry for Charlotte (also for Cleveland the other night against Portland). Charlotte started chucking up too many bad shots at the end, they're young though, and couldn't get any rebounds. Aldridge was huge in getting those.

People always forget about these things. I remember when the Bobcats were winning earlier in the year, and someone made a thread about how they're so "clutch" winning a lot of close games.... And then they proceed to not win one since. It happens every year at different junctions with many different teams. Yet in the end, it's always the teams that blow people away by 10+ points that end up going deep in the playoffs.

Of course, then there are anomalies like CP3, who is like a clutch god who transcend odds. But generally math always win out.
