MANILA, Philippines – Three more teams advanced to the NBA conference semifinals.

Portland did it in the most thrilling fashion as Damian Lillard knocked in a buzzer-beater from 37 feet to lift the Trail Blazers past the Oklahoma City Thunder, 118-115, for a 4-1 series win in the Western Conference on Tuesday, April 23 (Wednesday, April 24, Manila time).

Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers, meanwhile, bullied the Brooklyn Nets for a 122-100 Game 5 demolition to advance to the Eastern semis, while Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors also reached the next round after ripping the Orlando Magic, 115-96, for a 4-1 series win.
