Lillard steps to hecklers after loss to Timberwolves.
Following last night's loss in Minnesota, Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard stepped to a heckling fan who was waiting with a crowd of people near the Blazers' team bus.
One of the people in the crowd, who says they were waiting for an autograph, posted video of Dame's response to the heckling fan, though it's unclear what provoked his response in the first place. What is clear is that as soon as Lillard approached the barrier separating the fans from the players, everyone got real quiet.
Lillard can be seen asking the crowd, "What'd you say? Which one of y'all said that?" After the footage surfaced on twitter, a fan asked the 27-year old star what set him off. He replied, "They just lookin for attention."
Check out the footage below.
Lillard flirted with a triple double last night, posting 17 points, 13 assists and 8 rebounds but the Blazers fell to the Timberwolves by the final of 108-107. Portland has gone just 4-6 in their last 10 games but they're still above .500 on the year with a record of 16-14.
Through 30 games this season, Damian Lillard is averaging 25.5 points, 6.5 assists and 5.1 rebounds, all of which are above his career averages.
