Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard has praised his side's mentality as they fought off the Houston Rockets to take a 3-1 lead in their playoff series on Sunday.

The Blazers had Wesley Matthews to thank as he stole the ball from Patrick Beverley in the closing seconds of overtime in order to hand Portland the win.

"It's not about one or two people. It's about our group," Lillard said after the game.

"A lot of guys were able to come in and go above and beyond, sacrifice their bodies, diving on the floor. Our strength is in our unity, and it showed tonight."

The sides will meet again for Game Five on Wednesday in Houston.
