Damian Lillard told ESPN that two hecklers outside Target Center shouted what ESPN termed "anti-gay slurs" at the Portland guard as he was heading to the team bus after the Timberwolves' 108-107 victory over Portland on Monday. Cellphone videos showed Lillard under control but unhappy as he approached a group and asked, "Which one of you all said that?"
The Wolves beat Portland on Monday in an important game against a Western Conference contender. Wednesday's game at Denver is a similar challenge. 8 p.m., FSN.
"I've been a Packer fan for years. As much as I absolutely DESPISE the Vikings, I wish them good luck, all my friends are Vikings fans and I would enjoy seeing their happiness from a SB victory. It would also make the rivalry all the better."
