NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Minnesota Timberwolves Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Following Monday night’s 108-107 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard vented his frustration about the lack of free throws he and the team earned.

Sam Ekstrom of Zonecoverage.com had the transcript of Lillard’s comments immediately after the game.

The Trail Blazers attempted five total free throws (one of which was a technical foul) to the Timberwolves’ 21 total attempts. If you’re wondering how often a team takes 5 or less free throws, we looked that up too:

The Blazers shot 55% from the field in the game, 42% from the three-point arc, holding Minnesota to 47% and 37%, respectively.
