A three-pointer from Daimon Lillard on the buzzer has sent the Portland Trail Blazers through to the second round of the NBA play-offs.

The shot gave the home team a 99-98 game six victory over the Houston Rockets and the series win 4-2.

Down 98-96, Portland called a time-out with less than a second on the game clock needing a three point play to win the game.

Earlier on Saturday, the Dallas Mavericks forced their round one play-off series with the San Antonio Spurs to a deciding seventh game with a 113-111 home win.

The Brooklyn Nets also levelled their series with the Toronto Raptors three-all with a 97-83 win at home.
