To share: http://bit.ly/2pJjwaA

Portland Trail Blazers’ Damian Lillard stars in the latest installment of ESPN’s iconic ‘This is SportsCenter’ franchise.

In “Buzzer Beater,” Stan Verrett and Linda Cohn pay homage to Lillard’s penchant for thrilling buzzer beating plays. And “Dame Time” dominates Lillard’s calendar in a second spot filmed with Cohn, which includes Lillard rapping a few lines from his single “Sorry.”

The spots debut today to align with ESPN’s telecast of the 7 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET match-up between the Denver Nuggets and the Portland Trail Blazers on ESPN.
