On Monday at Target Center, the Portland Trail Blazers lost a 108-107 heartbreaker on the road to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The biggest story to come out on the night, though, was star point guard Damian Lillard being involved in a confrontation with fans outside of the arena.

After Lillard asked who the culprits were, a woman in the area pointed out one of the individuals and that person quickly apologized. It was said that no other action was taken against these fans in question. These people got called out by Lillard himself for their unnecessary insults, and rightfully so.

ESPN's Chris Haynes reported on the incident and revealed that homophobic slurs were thrown at Lillard, causing the Blazers star to snap at the fans.

Athlete Ally, a non-profit group trying to end homophobia in sports, issued a statement on Twitter following the incident.

“The use of these homophobic slurs have no place in sports or in society,” Executive Director Hudson Taylor said. “Fan sections remain one of the most unsafe places for the LGBTQ community, and will remain so if these slurs aren't met with condemnation and continued education.”

Against the Timberwolves, Damian Lillard finished with 17 points on 7-of-18 shooting, a game-high 13 assists, and eight rebounds in 37 minutes of action.
