Damian Lillard hit a game-winning three pointer over Cleveland's Alonso Gee with 0.4 seconds left to lift the Trail Blazers over the Cavaliers 119-116 Tuesday night.

Cleveland tied the game at 116-116 with seven seconds left after Kyrie Irving drove past Nic Batum and dumped off to Anderson Varejao for a dunk. Portland took a timeout and let Lillard go one-on-one to seal the game.

The win puts Portland at an NBA-best 22-4 while the Cavs slip to 9-15.
