Luka Doncic’s step-back is 2nd longest in playoff history behind Damian Lillard

Everyone will forever remember Damian Lillard waving goodbye to Paul George and the OKC Thunder in last year’s NBA playoffs. The one that George later argued was a “bad shot.”

Luka Doncic did his best “Dame Time” impersonation and knocked down one of the best shots from the 2019-2020 season in Game 4 against the Los Angeles Clippers.

With the clock ticking down in overtime, and a 2-1 series deficit hanging above his head, Doncic stared down Reggie Jackson and launched a ridiculous step-back three-pointer from 28 feet. Nothing but net.

It was straight pandemonium in the bubble after Luka hit the biggest shot of his still very young NBA career – one that only trailed Lillard (36 feet) in distance. Doncic after the game and tying the series at 2-2: “That was one of the best feelings ever.”
