The Damian Lillard-Paul George beef has escalated to family members.
Los Angeles ended up winning 122-117 after Lillard missed two clutch free throws with 18.6 seconds remaining.
The two exchanged words on social media, with Lillard referencing that he sent George home last season with his game-winning 3-pointer in the first round of the playoffs.
Now, Lillard’s sister and George’s girlfriend have attacked each other on social media as well.

There is clearly some bad blood between the two stars for this to escalate this far.
Lillard may have started this himself by taunting Clippers guard Patrick Beverley earlier in Saturday’s loss.
The loss was detrimental to the Blazers’ playoff hopes, and Lillard clearly has to be frustrated for missing free throws that could have altered the outcome.
Portland is now 1.5 games behind the Memphis Grizzlies for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference.
The Blazers will continue their season tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers at 6:30 p.m. EST.
