Perhaps no one enjoyed watching the Los Angeles Clippers come up short in Game 7 against the Denver Nuggets than Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.

As the seconds counted down on the Clippers' stunning second-round elimination, the Portland Trail Blazers guards took to Twitter, where they relentlessly chirped the losing squad.

Late in the fourth quarter, Paul George badly missed a 3-point attempt that clanked off the backboard. One fan asked Lillard to assess the errant heave and the Blazers star made a subtle reference to George's "That's a bad shot" remark regarding Lillard's long-range basket in 2019 that eliminated George and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Lillard's review didn't disappoint.

Lillard also took direct aim at Patrick Beverley, who mocked Lillard during a seeding game on Aug. 8 and then suggested he was headed for an early vacation in Cancun. McCollum also got in a few jabs.

Not even Clippers owner Steve Ballmer was safe from scrutiny.

Finally, McCollum capped off the teasing for the night.
