Alex Kennedy: Pelicans wanted to draft Anthony Davis 1st and Damian Lillard 10th in 2012, but Dame killed workouts and went 6th. NOLA would've been scary. Now, Damian Lillard at No. 10 sounds crazy, but remember that Lillard was considered a mid first-rounder entering the pre-draft process. Twitter @AlexKennedyNBA

With Portland up 61-43 at the 11:40-mark of the third, Bulls forward Mike Dunleavy leveled Blazers point guard with a hard foul on a three-point attempt. Wesley Matthews was quick to defend his teammate, shoving Dunleavy after the foul as the players had to be separated at midcourt. See the video below: Oregonian

Q: How would you describe the foul? Damian Lillard: "Cheap. It was cheap." Q: Safe to say you were angry about it? Lillard: "I've had worse things happen. But that was the last thing I was expecting on a wide-open three-point shot. It was a cheap play. I don't know what else to say about it." Oregonian

Trail Blazers All-Star Damian Lillard on Thursday expressed regret and remorse regarding inappropriate messages he sent out in 2011 on the social media site Twitter. On Wednesday night, Deadspin published a series of tweets from Lillard that were unearthed by a user on the website imgur. The fishing expedition to find salacious tweets from a host of NBA players "before they were stars" netted a host of messages containing unsavory language and inappropriate comments. Everyone from MVP Kevin Durant to Paul George was featured. Deadspin posted six tweets from Lillard, four of which were written in June 2011, the summer before Lillard's senior season at Weber State. They were directed at Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star LeBron James, who then was playing in the NBA Finals for the Miami Heat. The Dallas Mavericks defeated the Heat in six games in an upset and Lillard, then a young fan of the Heat, was displeased with the outcome and James' play. Oregonian
