SALT LAKE CITY — In a moment that will surely be remembered for a long, long time, former Weber State star Damian Lillard on Tuesday night hit a stepback 3-pointer from 37 feet out as time expired to lift the Portland Trail Blazers to a 118-115 win in Game 5 of their playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder, eliminating the Thunder from the playoffs.

With the shot, Lillard finished the night with an even 50 points.

Here's four different angles of the shot.

Immediately after the shot went in, Twitter users both locally and around the country reacted.

The shot set to "Titanic" music gets its own mention.

A few people who have been directly involved in athletics at Weber State also chimed in.

But the tweet of the night goes to the Trail Blazers' social media team, as it sent a savage tweet referencing Thunder guard Russell Westbrook's frequent usage of "next question" during press conferences.

Speaking of press conferences, here is Lillard talking about the shot after the game.

And his wave to Thunder players.
