Two fans shouted anti-gay slurs to Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard while he was walking to the team bus on Monday night, sources told ESPN. Lillard confirmed to ESPN that the phrases were shouted at him, after the Blazers' 108-107 loss to the Timberwolves in Minnesota. "I don't bother nobody," Lillard told ESPN. "They were straight disrespectful." Cellphone video captured an irritated Lillard approaching the hecklers, asking, "Which one of you all said that?" A woman in the area pointed out one of the individuals, and that person apologized. Sources at the scene say no action was taken against the fans. Lillard was already not in the nicest disposition after the game. The two-time All-Star played 37 minutes, finishing with 17 points and 13 assists, and was miffed that Portland only attempted five free throws during the game. Minnesota went to the line 21 times. Lillard, one of the best drivers and finishers in the league, had one free throw attempt. He let his frustration be known immediately after the game. "We had a lead," Lillard said of Portland's 10-point advantage midway through fourth quarter. "I think, on our part, that was the main thing is the  turnovers. ... Maybe those get cut in half if you're not allowed to grab and all that stuff. Half of those things may not happen.
