The Portland Trail Blazers were dealt a 108-107 loss.
Two fans shouted anti-gay slurs at Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard while he was walking to the team bus on Monday night, sources told ESPN.
“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.
